Abstract:River valleys or lake basins have for some time now constituted some of the unique areas for single-purpose of multi-purpose planning for development, in such developments, African countries hesitated for quite some time before joining in. Considerations of political and financial nature retarded attempts in this direction. It is of recent time that African countries started concertations with the aim of formulating favourable policies geared towards river-valley or lake basin development. To a deduced scale the Upper Menchum river valley in the North West Province of Cameroon, subject of this study, is an example of such development. The problem one is contending with in this study is that, when micro-plans for resource utilization within a small ecological zone are well co-ordinated, followed up, and local populations made to participate at each stage, success can be spectacular and so serve as a spring board for broader regional developments. - Bibliogr., fig., notes, sum. in English and French.
