Yinda Godwin Sendze is a Lecturer of Soil Science with specialty in Soil Fertility and Fertilization, Land use, Soil Pollution and Solid Waste Management.

He has developed a special interest for waste management problems as they affect soil fertility and crops grown on polluted soils.

This interest has culminated in a collaborative work with researchers from the University of Cottbus, Germany, in the Partnerships for Sustainable Solutions with Sub-Saharan Africa, German Government project.This project deals with the development of a pilot research waste management plant set up at the University of Buea for separating co-mingled solid waste from the Buea Council,composting organic wastes, and producing cooking gas from pyrolysis of plastic wastes.

He had earlier carried out composting trials of empty fruit bunches (EFBs) of palms at the CDC plantation oil mills in Idenau. This study demonstrated to CDC the possibility of composting EFBs for use as organic fertilizer, instead of letting them become an environmental problem.

He is presently studying quantifiable Carbon sequestration, as organic carbon, found in the soils on the Mt Cameroon area under various land use patterns. This study might become very useful to the country in negotiations for REED+.
