According to the constitution of Cameroon all citizens have the right to a healthy environment and it is the duty of the State and the citizens to protect this environment. Also the principle of taking into account the environment in public policy is secured in the constitution, marking the country's commitment to sustainable development at the highest level. The legal and institutional framework to protect the environment is further shaped by the environmental management law of 1996, several sectoral laws and a decree from 2013 laying down the procedures for environmental and social impact assessments.
