Download resource here: Download

With approx. 350,000 inhabitants, Garoua is the third most populated city in Cameroon. The population is growing at an annual rate of 2.8% due to high birth rates and an influx of migrants from neighboring countries, particularly Chad and Nigeria. Half of the people in North Cameroon’s economic hub are employed in the primary sector (agriculture, livestock and fishing); other main activities include (informal) trade, handicrafts and processing.

This infographic was created for the signatory city as part of the GIZ support to CoM SSA.
