Comment: “Data on environment are not available from the Ministry of environment. Few years ago The Cameroon’s National Institute of Statistics did a study on the pollution of surface and ground water in Yaoundé and its impact on population health.. http://www.statistics-cameroon.org/fr5/downloads/EPESS_Note_synthese_version_12_juillet_2013.pdf (this study is not available).”
