FEICOM General Manager visits Kumbo:

The General Manager of the Council’s Support Fund (FEICOM), Mr. Phillipe Camille Akoa recently paid a visit to Kumbo. This was in a bid to see the domains where FEICOM will fund projects. The G.M was particularly interested in the water sector, whereby he visited the Tobin Water Project to make an appraisal of the various problems that affect the water scheme. He equally stopped by the Kumbo Water Treatment centre at Bamkika-ai Kumbo. There, he was briefed by the manager of the Kumbo Water Authority, Mr. Shiyntum Justin on the various stages that water passes through before it finally gets to the consumer. The FEICOM G.M saw for himself the problems affecting the Kumbo Water scheme as the manager.

FEICOM G.M's 2nd Stop in Kumbo:

Mr. Phillipe Camille Akoa was again in Kumbo on August 4, 2009 to inspect the construction of the Kumbo Town hall (already completed) and the Kumbo Council Meeting Hall which is still at the foundation level. The FEICOM boss came to see for himself the progress made so far. Mr. Phillipe Camille Akoa, said he was impressed with the progress of work and the general management of the project, which according to him goes to justify the decision earlier taken by FEICOM to allow the Councils to choose their contractors through tenders. Before then, FEICOM chose contractors for councils.

The Kumbo Town Hall project has been funded by FEICOM, costing a total of one hundred and eighty -seven million three hundred seventy-five thousand six hundred and eighty-five francs (187, 375,685) FCFA. This amount is for the first phase that constitutes offices and the civil status registration hall. The second phase of the project costs fifty eight million, two hundred fifteen thousand and twenty-seven francs (58,215,027) FCFA. This phase comprises a meeting hall, and landscaping, which includes beautification of the environment with flowers and lawns.

 
Local Economic Development Strategy:

After the elaboration of the Strategic Plan, 2007-2013 the Kumbo Council deemed it necessary to come up with a Local Economic Strategy for Kumbo Municipality. In collaboration with the International Labour Organisation a LED Strategy has been developed for Kumbo.

This LED critically examines the economy of Kumbo and proposes strategies for improvement. The LED was developed in partnership with the economic stakeholders of the municipality.

It has been integrated into the Strategic Plan. This ties very well with the Kumbo Council vision of an ‘Economic Explosion’ for Kumbo

 
Kumbo Council elaborates her 3rd Strategic Plan:

The Kumbo Council has elaborated her 3rd strategic plan since the Social Democratic Front took over affairs of the Council in 1996. This strategic plan presents the direction Kumbo Council intends to take for the holistic development of the municipality from 2009 - 2013. As a plan it sets out the development vision, strategic goals and the activities to realize the goals. The plan is based on the responsibilities placed under the realms of the council. Within the means available, the Kumbo Council intends in the coming 5 years to promote development within these areas of powers devolved on councils.

To meet the exigencies of her mission as set out by law the Council has a vision for 2013 as ‘Kumbo Council ensures participatory and sustainable development of the municipality through sound and transparent financial management, viable partnerships and strong and informed local institutions’. During the elaboration of this plan, the Kumbo Council followed a participatory approach. She worked with different technical and consultancy services, councilors, government technical services, etc.

The process has further been developed, drawing a lot of experience from the first two strategic plans. The process and the plan have taken cognizance of the current decentralization process, the ongoing government development efforts such as GPDERUDEP. It also recognizes the collaboration possibilities with international organizations.

Furthermore, this plan contributes towards meeting UN MGDS and tackles in its own small way the major problems of the time such as environmental degradation, HIV/AIDS and the endemic corruption plaguing the society. It is worth noting that the Kumbo Council was the first council in Cameroon to elaborate a Strategic Plan in Cameroon.

 
Combatting Climate Change:

In order to mitigate the ravaging effects of Climate Change, the Kumbo Council has intensified tree planting. The naturalization of the Taayav Council forest with emphasis on agro-forestry is ongoing. In 2009 over 6500 natural trees, with 1050 trees were planted in the municipality as a result of “one child one tree policy” to fight against global warming.
