Abstract

Like neighbouring countries in April 2015, Cameroon suffered a resurgence of violence from the Nigeria-based Boko Haram terrorist group. On 16 April, an attack on the village of Bia on the shore of Lake Chad resulted in 19 civilians murdered. The extreme north of Cameroon, which reaches Lake Chad, is listed as a humanitarian crisis zone by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), as refugees fleeing Boko Haram's violence in Nigeria and Niger flood into the region. In the south and east of the country, cross-border raids from militias based in the Central African Republic (CAR) continue to trouble Cameroon, with three Cameroonians murdered and seven kidnapped on 23 April. Against this conflict backdrop, investors are assessing Cameroon's economic potential, which is mostly in agriculture.
