) is the capital of Cameroon and, with a population of approximately 2.5 million, the second largest city in the country after the port city Douala.
It lies in the centre of the nation at an elevation of about 750 metres (2,500 ft) above sea level. Major Dominik's establishment of a military garrison at the site in 1895 permitted a Pallotine mission and religious school at nearby Mvolyé (now a suburb).
The city centre houses government offices, some hotels, and the central market.
The Bastos district, with most homes owned by Cameroonians, is home to foreign embassies and the expatriate European, American and other continental communities (drawn mainly from the diplomatic corps).
However, just like many countries on the continent, Cameroon has been grappling with corruption, which dominates almost all the sectors, particularly in the capital city.
Oil, gas, and mining revenues are rarely reported, which implies massive graft.
The presidential palace and compound is in the Etoudi district.
It continued as the seat of government for the Republic of Cameroon upon its independence.Major industries in Yaoundé include tobacco, dairy products, beer, clay, glass goods, and lumber.It is also a regional distribution centre for coffee, cocoa, copra, sugar cane, and rubber. The city is estimated to have "50,000 pigs and over a million chickens." In 2010, under Mayor Jean Claude Adjessa Melingui, Yaoundé began a flood reduction project, the Yaoundé City Sanitation Master Plan, to deal with "severe floods [that] disrupted the city 15 to 20 times a year, affecting as many as 100,000 people at a time." After four years, the frequency of flooding had been reduced from fifteen to three times a year, and cases of water-borne diseases such as typhoid and malaria were reduced by almost half.Although Melingui died in 2013, local officials are continuing his efforts to transform the city.
Ongoing improvements to sanitation infrastructure are being carried out under a "2 million plan, largely financed by loans, primarily from Af DB and the French development agency," slated for completion in 2017.Despite the security issues and humanitarian crises that have plagued the Central African nation, its economy remains stable.
