Cellule d'Appui à la Conservation et aux Initiatives de Developpement Durable (CACID, Grupo de Apoyo a las Iniciativas de Conservación y Desarrollo Sostenible)

Cellule d'Appui à la Conservation et aux Initiatives de Developpement Durable (CACID, Support Group for Conservation and Sustainable Development Initiatives) was the local implementing partner to the Waza Logone floodplain rehabilitation project, an IUCN-led intervention in northern Cameroon from 1987-2000. The project piloted a succession of floodwater releases to rehabilitate an area badly affected by hydroelectric dam development in the late-1970s.

Critical to these efforts was conflict resolution between the area's pastoralist, agrarian, and fishing communities, who relied on the floodplain's scarce water resources for their livelihoods. This was successfully carried out by CACID, who also worked with Waza National Park authorities to develop sustainable livelihood activities and conserve the park's biodiversity. The work of CACID has been carried out since 2000 by three local NGOs, which each specialise in key aspects of the initial project.
