The struggle for 'green' politics in Africa
The following link has an article about the struggle within a number of African countries to centralize the issue of the environment by forming 'green' parties or groups. This is a fairly new movement for some and is seen as a way to promote more democracy without the tribal bias. See; http://www.global.greens.org.au/cameroon.html . Apart from intimidation from the authorities their main problem is funding. Western agencies and NGOs could do more to link up and help these groups. It would help them tackle problems on the ground within their countries in their own manner and design.
