Many of them are subsidiaries of organizations existing worldwide. NGO’s activi- ties are governed by the law of 22nd of December 1999, which regulates their activities in a variety of areas ranging from the development to environment through the various aspects of human rights to the protection of the health of populations.For example: organizations that were consulted for the construction of the Chad-Cameroun pipe- line. The source of funds available to these orga- nizations and their use are now subject to control by the authorities.THE CAMEROON DIPLOMATIC SYSTEMCameroon has an extensive diplomatic network, with about thirty embassies and representations to international organizations such as the UN and the EU, plus a number of consulates in coun- tries where large Cameroonian communities are found (see Chapter on Practical Information at the end of volume).Cameroon's diplomacy is headed by the President of the Republic himself. He is assisted in his task by the Minister of External Relations; the latter is assisted by two Minister Delegates, one for Relations with the Commonwealth, the other for Relations with the Islamic World.L’Ambassade du Cameroun en Belgique à BruxellesCameroon is a member of the Organization of the Islamic Conference – OIC since 1974
