This study assesses levels of village satisfaction on policy of Participatory Conservation, based on quantitative values assigned to levels of high, average, and low, derived from a case study and comparative analysis of 14 villages across the Bomboko and West Coast clusters of Mount Cameroon National Park, and what implications this has for policy implimentation. Applying methods of purposeful sampling, focus group discussions, and surveys, 238 respondents were interviewed. Findings show 53.6% high, 40% average, 6.3% less recorded for Westcoast; meanwhile >38% high, 59% average, and 23% less recorded for Bomboko. This was accounted for by road accessibility and nearness to CBD. We conclude that effectiveness of policy intervention in our study area depends on urban-proximity, accessibility and state amenity supplies, that conform with dependency theories.
