Results of the 5th Cameroon Household Survey (CHS5)

Summary: The main findings of CHS5 point to a resilient economy, but one faced with persistent poverty and increased vulnerability of households to the various shocks to which they are exposed. With an average annual economic growth rate of 2.6% over the period 2020 to 2023, not far from the demographic growth rate of 2.5% per year, the poverty rate stood at 38.6% in 2021. Compared with the 30.8% target set for the NDS30 by 2030, this represents a gap of nearly 8 points to be reduced. Fast-tracking and strengthening the implementation of the NDS30 and the sectoral strategies that underpin it is the way forward. Particular attention should be paid to policies aimed at mitigating the impact of unavoidable shocks.
