Community Agricultural and Environmental Protection Association (CAEPA) Cameroon was founded by a group of women seeking to improve their agricultural production systems by making them environment-friendly and sustainable especially. Later they realized the linkage between natural resource rights, and climate and environmental justice. They also realized there was a connection between land degradation, poverty, and violence against women and HIV and AIDS. They included fighting against violence in the programs. CAEPA Cameroon was created in 2009 and legalized in the year 2011 under Cameroon Law No. 90-53 of 19/12/90 related to Associations. Since 2009, its activities have expanded to address issues of natural resource rights, climate and environmental justice, and their connection to land degradation, poverty, and violence against women/girls and HIV and AIDS.
CAEPA Cameroon is headquartered in Bamenda, North-West Region of Cameroon. The organization is expanding its programs to cover South West region-SWR (Fako, Meme, Manyu, Ndian) and North West region-NWR (Momo, Mezam, Boyo, Ngoh-ketunjia) of Cameroon
