EROSION, CAMEROON. Mount Oku, Bamenda Highlands. Establishing a contour hedge to prevent erosion. The A-frame is used to plot a level contour across the slope. Initially, Tephrosia, a leguminous shrub is sown followed by Calliandra, an exotic tree species. Contour hedges help prevent soil loss from steep slopes, thus reducing the need to destroy more of the forest. CDREF00220
