RELUFA, the Joining Hands network in Cameroon, has just released a policy brief on the implementation of the Kimberley Process in Cameroon. The Kimberley Process is a process that is meant to keep “conflict diamonds” (diamonds procured through the financing of violence and war) out of the market. RELUFA’s policy brief “The Kimberley Process: Responding to challenges and Policy gaps in Cameroon” examines the challenges and policy gaps that Cameroon must address to effectively reap benefits from its diamond export.
