This report presents the findings of a DFID-funded study into the costs and benefits of alternative land use options in forested lowland of the Mount Cameroon Region. \ud \ud The aim is to consider the financial and broader economic returns to oil palm and rubber plantations, sustainable forest use and subsistence oriented agriculture (chopfarms). We have made a particular effort to compare the returns from possible expansion by the Cameroon Development Corporation (CamDev) with alternative options in each of the five areas identified in the recent draft environmental impact assessment- ERM (1997).
