Summary of your idea
The main objective of this idea is to provide the villagers with a source of income through the intensive cultivation of Avocado that can be exported. Activities will include sensitization of the local population on the importance of cultivating this fruit as it is nourishing and on how profitable it can be if intensively cultivated for sales. The intensive cultivation is also to enable areas where avocados do not do well to be able to get supplies from Cameroon hence providing food to such areas
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The cultivation of this fruit by the local population especially the poor will provide with a source of income which will enable them to send their children to school since education is on an increase in Cameroon. The Avocado trees will also help in the fight against global warming.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Each family especially in remote areas such as villages should be persuasively sensitized on planting at least an avocado tree. Good species of avocado should be nursed and given out to this families for free so that there will be no cost incurred in planting. Teams should be formed to carry out a routine every two weeks at the early stage of planting of the trees so as to provide care and ensure healthiness of the trees. A team should be formed that ensures buying of excess produce during harvest seasons so that they can be exported. In the long run people will begin seeing the benefit of cultivating avocados and may start cultivating on a plantation basis so as to have higher incomes.
