La mobilité pastorale joue un rôle important dans la vie socio-économique des populations au Sahel et en Afrique de l’Ouest. Cependant, à travers la littérature, on perçoit la mobilité comme responsable de la dégradation de l’environnement, l’émission de gaz à effet de serre, la désertification, la faible performance économique, etc. (AUBREVILLE A, 1949 ; HUBERT H, 1920; LAMPREY H, 1975). Toutefois, à partir de la fin des années 1990 un nouvel regard s’est orienté vers l’élevage mobile avec son rôle dans la lutte contre la désertification et le maintien de la biodiversité (BOURBOUZE A. et al, 2002 ; EL AICH A, WATERHOUSE A, 1999). Cette synthèse bibliographique tente de dégager le rôle et la place de la mobilité pastorale dans la vie socio-économique et environnementale au Sahel et en Afrique de l’Ouest. De plus, cette synthèse fait ressortir le lien entre la mobilité et les mutations foncières que vivent le pastoralisme et la mobilité au Sahel. [less ▲]

Assessing social impacts of various products, services and human activities has achieved an increasing interest worldwide. The nature of sustainability of biobased industries from a social point of view is how and to what extent they are perceived by society, and how various societies take advantages from such activities. However, an important issue is that social factors are not usually easy to be quantitatively analyzed and although the social impacts might be very remarkable, especially at the local scale, they have been not possible to be investigated in the majority of impact evaluations in the past. Despite the existence of many different methodologies towards Social Life Cycle Assessment (SLCA) to address social impacts of various businesses and industries, most of them impartially address social performances of an industry. The aim of this paper is to highlight the main criteria that need to be taken into account in SLCA approaches for identifying the social indicators and impacts of biobased industries that is a timely topic worldwide toward climate change mitigation goals. Accordingly, considering the general approach of SLCA and particularly its inventory analysis phase for impact categories and indicator determinations, the paper provides an overview of the existing guidelines and frameworks for identifying social indicators and impact categories associated with bio-industries. In conclusion, main impact categories and indicators formulated in the existing frameworks applied to biobased industries are demonstrated as a basic set of applicable elements of social dimensions in evaluating bio-industries’ sustainability when conducting SLCAs. The state of the art for this study mainly includes leading journal articles, international reports and conference papers up to and including 2016 on SLCA in biobased industries. According to the reviewed frameworks in this study, quantitative, midpoint and site-specific data are the main elements taken into account when collecting the data for biobased product social impact assessment. This study also reveals that although SLCA is in its early steps of development and despite in numerous cases, conducting a comprehensive SLCA is not yet feasible, it has been considered to have substantially promising methodological attributes that can help policymakers and other stakeholders to quantify and assess sustainability of bio-industries from the social perspective. Recommendations for further research work concerning SLCA in bio-industries are also presented. [less ▲]

Tea is one of key crops which substantially contributes to Vietnam’s annual exports, creates jobs and raises income for farmers. However, tea production farmers are still facing many difficulties such as low farm management, disease control, etc. Of which, tea consumption is considered to be the most challenge and the main reasons is the low cooperation between farmers and other stakeholders in the tea value chain. This study aims to look more deeply and find out the linkage and benefit of farmers in the model of cooperation between farmers and tea processing company through contract and none contract tea production in the study site. The results shown that the contract farming in tea production in the study sites was still not tightened and did not reflect clearly its real roles. However, it was gradually reflected it s roles as the fully contract farmers (worker farmers) received the highest productivity, turnover and value added and the most satisfied, the contract farmers (partly contract) achieved not as high benefit but quite satisfied with their results and contract. None contract farmers although received reasonable results recently but they still did not assure the production, they would like to engage in some kinds of cooperation in the future. [less ▲]

La PAC, définie dans le traité de Rome et mise en oeuvre depuis 1962, est soumise, depuis le début des années 90, à un processus de réforme afin de répondre aux nouveaux défis de l’agriculture européenne mais également afin d’honorer les engagements pris par l'Union européenne (UE) dans le cadre de ses relations commerciales internationales. Le 18 novembre 2010, la Commission européenne a publié une communication sur la PAC de l’après 2013, suivie le 12 octobre 2011 de propositions législatives, lançant de longues négociations entre le Conseil européen des Ministres de l’Agriculture et, pour la première fois de l’histoire de la PAC, le Parlement européen, nouveau co-législateur pour cette matière. En parallèle aux négociations sur la PAC se déroulaient celles relatives au cadre financier pluriannuel 2014-2020 (CFP). Ce dernier fixe non seulement les montants des ressources financières pour chaque catégorie de dépenses de l’UE mais également inclut des décisions sur des éléments importants des politiques elles-mêmes dont celles relatives à la PAC. Après plus de 18 mois de négociations budgétaires, les chefs d’Etat de chaque Etat membre (EM) sont parvenus à un accord concernant le CFP 2014-2020 lors du conseil européen des 7 et 8 février 2013. Peu de temps après cet accord budgétaire, le Conseil Agriculture, le Parlement européen et la Commission européenne ont abouti à un accord sur les Règlements relatifs à la PAC le 26 juin 2013, complété le 24 septembre 2013. Un des résultats du nouveau Règlement « Paiements directs », négocié entre les 28 EM et le Parlement européen, est une nouvelle architecture des paiements directs ainsi qu’un nombre très important de choix stratégiques à prendre par les EM, et dans le cas de la Belgique, les Régions, qui doivent choisir parmi différentes options qui restent ouvertes par la réglementation européenne. La plupart des choix politiques des EM et régions ont dû être notifiées à la Commission européenne pour le 1er août 2014, certains choix un peu plus tardivement (les dernières décisions, plus techniques, devaient être notifiées pour le 31 janvier 2015).

Using a survey on the socio-economic situation of households in 2012, the study analyses the effect of non farm income on inequality and poverty alleviation in a rural area of the Democratic Republic of Congo, by comparing a group of households practicing agriculture only and another group which combines agriculture and nonfarm activities. The approach used considers non farm income as an exogenous transfer which completes the whole household income, and analyses the contribution of different sources of income on the inequality in using the Gini index. The results show that inequality increases when a segment of the population does not have access to non-agricultural income. In this case, non farm income is not a substitute of farm income, rather the complement. The poverty analysis is based on the Congolese rural threshold poverty in terms of basic needs to calculate the rate, depth and severity of poverty indexes in using of Foster- Greer-Thorbecke. The results show that households practicing agriculture only are poorer. [less ▲]

The Sahelian's environment suffered many perturbations increasing the food insecurity risks. Since three decades, the environment suffered a intense and significant land deterioration (Warren A. And al., 2001). A lot of regreening actions have been developped in the Sahelian countries but some actions are most sustainable and the costs are lower than the other. The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) has developped some actions to strengthen the natural ressources management. The most important actions have been introduced from the mi-term of 1,980 (Sendzimir J. And al., 2011). These actions concerned the main water and soil conservation technics: Zaï; „contour“ stone bund; half-moons; permeable rock dams (Wesel A., Rath T., 2002). The paper attempts to answer about the following question: „what are the indirect and direct socioeconomic impacts of the natural ressources management in the Maradi’s region ?“. Moreover, Maradi is the historical area of the IFAD actions and illustrates some major causes of land degradation. The main causes are the increase of demography and agricultural areas. In fact, the demography and agricultural area of Maradi are seriously worrying: 8 children per women and the agricultural area is less than 1 hectare per household (Andres L., Lebailly Ph., 2013). The paper relates and describes the main anti-erosion technics. It compared also the cost-benefit analysis about the soil and water conservation technics. Finally, the report try to establish a key who links the technics with the context (soil, people, environment, agriculture, livestock) (Moussa Dit Kalamou M., 2015; Jasmien C.J. and al., 2013).

This research analyzes the gender dimensions of labor migration and agricultural production among farm households in Red River Delta region of Vietnam. Through surveying 215 households in Bac Ninh province, the paper explores impacts of female and male migration on agricultural production and its implications on rural development. The results show that in comparison to male migration household, the female one tends to focus on agricultural production by taking the opportunities to rent more land (26.3%) and effective use their own allocated land for agricultural production (97.4%). The overall impacts of migration on agricultural production are the aging of farm labor force (49.6 year old in average) and higher female participation in agricultural production. The findings suggest that female migrants have a greater contribution in agriculture production both in term of working time and agricultural capital investment while male migrants enhance household income by accumulating capital outside agriculture. Through the gender lens, this research emphasizes the duality in the nature of migrant lives and the implications of rural labor migration on the fixed categories. [less ▲]

La population pastorale et agro-pastorale du Bénin détient presque la totalité du cheptel bovin national. Le lait constitue le produit le plus fréquent issu de l'élevage bovin. Une enquête a été menée dans la commune de Kalalé au sein de 16 ménages peuls afin de comprendre l'organisation de ces ménages dans la gestion du lait. Il ressort que l'organisation autour du capital lait est genre sensible: l'homme aussi bien que la femme, dans leurs rôles respectifs, contribuent à assurer la pérennité du capital bétail.

This study investigated the determinants of financial inclusion for small scale farmers by focusing on the access to formal and informal agricultural credits in the Southern Province of Rwanda. Data were collected from 310 farmers from Huye and Nyamagabe districts through an open-ended structured questionnaire and analysed using the binary logistic regression method. The major findings, on one hand, showed that among the requested and approved agricultural loans, 87.2% and 12.7% were from informal and formal financial institutions respectively. Among those who accessed agricultural credits, 59.7% were from Huye and 40.3% from Nyamagabe. On the other hand, it was revealed that the household characteristics and the community attributes are the most important determinants. Those household characteristics include household income and expenditure, Ubudehe socio-economic category of the household, off-farm employment and the size of the land owned by the household whereas community attributes involve residence area, transport and informal financial services availability. Regarding farmer characteristics, the education level was found to be the only factor affecting the smallholder farmers' access to agricultural credit. In light of the findings, it was recommended to conduct sensitization sessions focusing on the importance of agricultural credits for smallholder farmers especially in the areas with high level of poverty. In addition, there is need to work on alleviating the formal agricultural credits access barriers, and to conduct a study on the dynamics of informal and formal agricultural credits up take and usage by smallholder farmers to explore all dimensions of financial inclusion in the study area.

Rural industrial development and new rural development programmes are the main target of Vietnam in the process of industrialization – modernization of the country. To expedite this process, it is necessary to promote the development and encourage the contributions of small enterprise in general and small enterprise rural in particular because practices in many countries show the important role of small and micro enterprises in local development. This paper presents the initial results of research to understand the economic–social contributions of rural enterprises to local development through the mobilization of local resources as well as establishment of the economic-social relations in local of rattan’s enterprises in the suburb of Hanoi, and then propose some measures to facilitate the operation of enterprises and promote the contribution of rattan’s enterprises for local development.

The commercial potential of passion fruit is expanding as demand for both fresh fruit and processed juice is increasing in Burundi. Due to the current situation with an unstable market of traditional crops for export, farmers in Matongo have embraced passion fruit as a new source of household income. As the crop generates substantial revenues for farmers, wholesalers and processors, it is important to sustain this sector. The purpose of this research was to compare four variants of diffusionist arguments (age, sex, household size and level of education) and their expression into adoption. Comparative descriptive statistical analysis between adopters and non-adopters to test the essential factors, and participatory survey methods for gathering information were used. Our results showed a highly significant difference between the category of adopters and non-adopters at p < 0.01. However, no significant difference was found between adopters and non-adopters within level of education. Data on the level of education demonstrated that those with little or no education adopted more passion fruit [illiterates (48.9%) and primary level (45.9%)] than these with secondary level (5.2%). The heads of household adopters and non-adopters are mainly men at a rate of 83.7 and 88.3 %, and household size was not a discriminating factor. The factors that promote the adoption of passion fruit are high yield and continuous production, high market demand and permanent source of revenue. Defining only a few variables to analyse the adoption trend could mislead our findings. A participatory approach seems most appropriate for understanding adoption and non-adoption of innovation.

Cette étude analyse la vulnérabilité des systèmes d’exploitation agricoles à base de mil et de sorgho à la variabilité climatique et l’adoption des innovations techniques dans les zones sahélienne et soudano- sahélienne du Mali. Sur la base d’enquêtes réalisées auprès de 360 exploitations agricoles dans les zones sahélienne et soudano-sahélienne, cette recherche a montré que la variabilité pluviométrique observée au cours des trois décennies dans les sites de recherche à travers des insuffisances et irrégularités des pluies est perçue 97% des producteurs comme le principal facteur de risque qui affecte la productivité des systèmes à base de mil et de sorgho. Elle est suivie par la pauvreté des sols 81%, et du manque d’équipement agricole, 47%. Les impacts de ces facteurs au niveau des exploitations agricoles se traduisent par une baisse des rendements des cultures, et de la fréquence des pénuries en denrées alimentaires qui sont observées par 98% des exploitations tous les ans et plus de 50% des producteurs tous les 3 ans. Pour réduire les vulnérabilités, des pratiques et innovations ont été adoptées par les exploitations agricoles au cours des 10 à 15 dernières années. Les principales portent sur le microdosage d’engrais, les variétés améliorées, le microdosage d’engrais, le trempage des semences, les techniques de conservation du sol et de l’eau, la fertilisation organique et la pratique de l’agroforesterie. Les entretiens semi-structurés (ISS) avec des questionnaires administrés auprès des chefs d’exploitation agricole familiale (EAF) ont été utilisés pour la collecte des données. Les statistiques descriptives, les matrices, et le cluster analyse ont été réalisés pour l’analyse des données avec les logiciels EXCEL et SPSS. [less ▲]

In a context of low literacy rates and a high level of rurality, the use of rural radio in agricultural extension is a method that can bridge the gap that exists between researchers, extension workers, and farmers. This article examines the level of farmers’ access to rural radio in relation to gender and livelihoods. The study was conducted in Benin with 18 rural radio stations and 240 rice processors, using the sustainable livelihoods framework to examine the relationship between access to rural radio and livelihoods. Although the study cannot draw conclusions on causal relationships, rice processors who often listened to agricultural broadcasts had better social, financial, and human capital stocks compared to those who did not. Despite the efforts of 72% of the radio stations to link up with extension services, half of the rice processors rarely or never listened to agricultural broadcasts, because the timing of the broadcasts was inappropriate. Interactive radio sessions with farmers that involve government officials will need to address this if they are to become more effective. [less ▲]

In the context of Renovation in Vietnam, there is a large wave of peasant migrants moving out of agriculture to find the jobs in nonfarm sectors. The interactions of migration and agricultural production can be seen in different aspects. This research focused on behaviors of farm households. There are the less evidences of labor shortages at both production and hiring labors. Maintenance at reasonable level rather than rather than the abandonment or expansion of agricultural activites is likely the more popular trend. Although remittance presented as a stable financial inflow ensures the sufficient cash which would strenghten the rural households' livelihoods security and reduce force of selling agricultural production for cash, agriculture production is still fundamental livelihood activity for household security.
