Research, Policy and Knowledge Translation
As an organization, CAEPA knows its communities well, however there is still much to be learned.
The collection of baseline data is a priority for CAEPA. This research will be carried out by trained outreach workers who will share information and offer on-going support on specific issues relevant to north-west and south-west households. The CAEPA outreach team will also engage mobile populations and pastoral communities, including the Mbororo, Montagnards, and Pygmy populations in the north-west and south-west regions.
Throughout the 5-year period of this strategic framework, the results of this research will inform continued behaviour change communication and community collaboration, but particularly multi-sectoral and farmer-pastoral cooperation, to achieve sustainable development outcomes. CAEPA will also share its research findings with local government and community-based agencies.
