The North West Development Authority with its French acronym MIDENO acts on behalf of the Government of the Republic of Cameroon in the North-West Region as the supervisor of development policy and providing a budgetary, financial and technical mechanism for development projects. It also has a mandate; organizing the communities and promoting the socio-economic environment and improving the living conditions in rural areas as well as conducting any study, research or operations connected with rural development in the North West Region.
Charged with the above responsibilities, MIDENO has conceived, mounted and supervised several projects in the North West Region notably; MIDENO Phases I and II reformulated, the Grassfield Participatory and Decentralized Rural Development Project GP-DERUDEP and now the Livestock and Fisheries Development Project (LIFIDEP) and GP-DERUDEP Phase II.
The activities of Mideno involve:
- Assisting the rural population to improve their living conditions
- Coordinating activities of key stakeholders in rural development in the region.
Over time, we have been given the mandate to oversee, coordinate rural development efforts, mounting and supervision of projects.
However, despite our numerous achievements, not all the corners of the Region have felt their impact due to some perennial problems which the Government of Cameroon is working hard to redress.
Our main funding partners are, the African Development Bank, Islamic Development Bank and the Cameroon Government.
