How we are governed

CMN has a clearly defined constitution that draws heavily from that of the African Mangrove Network (AMN) consisting of The General Assembly (GA) as the highest decision making body comprising all members held every three years; A Thirty-three (33) Member Executive Committee (EC) ) headed by the National Coordinator comprising members if the National Coordination Executive (NCE) (9 members), Technical Advisory Group (9 members), Regional/Block and Zonal Coordinators (15 members) from within the mangrove and coastal regions of South-West, Littoral, South and Yaounde (Figure).

The network Secretariat is based in Mouanko-Littoral region hosted by the NGO Cameroon Wildlife Conservation Society (CWCS) that manages the day-day activities of the network assisted by the Secretary-General from NGO Cameroon Ecology (CamEco), Edea, Treasurer from NGO Cercle de Promoteurs de Développement Durable (CPDD), Yaounde and Network Assistant; the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) gives technical advice and strategic guidance; and the Block Coordinators (BC) and Zonal Contact Groups (ZCG) within each Block coordinate the implementation of decisions among members and communities within the mangrove and coastal regions of South-West, Littoral, South and Yaounde National Capital.
