The adoption of unsuitable extension methods to promote participatory analog forestry in the under developed countries because of stereotype institutional policies and profit maximization has led to poor participation of farmers in analog forestry extension programs. The study titled “Participatory analog forestry extension: the experience of small-scale farmers and institutions in the Northwest and Southwest Regions of Cameroon” was designed with the objective of contributing in the enhancement of a better participatory analog forestry management for extension institutions and farmers through an analysis of participatory analog forestry adoption methods.One hundred and fifty two (152) questionnaires were purposively administered to contact and non-contact farmers. Focus group discussions were carried out with 4 women groups, 2 youth groups and 2 groups made up of men and women. Field observation on tree type, nursery development and local potential for analog forestry were carried using the analog forestry serial stage model. Data collected were collated, coded and analyzed using the Chi-square at 0.05 alpha levels of significances to test differences. SPSS 6.1 version was use for cross-tabulations and contingency tables that generated frequencies and percentages and finally, the SWOT and content analysis were used to treat data generated by focus group discussions with small-scale farmers and interviews with the extension fraternity. local potentials identified by the farmers included; knowledge in tree growing and use, knowledge in tree management and local support resources in the ratio of 4:2:1. The study concluded that farmers potentials have been underutilized and there is a strong need for these potentials to be maximize by the various extension institutions for the promotion of analog forestry
