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.

Les résultats de cette étude montrent qu’en général, les quantités consommées dans les ménages de Kinshasa ainsi que les apports énergétiques et protéiques sont déficitaires et en baisse. Ces quantités et apports sont plus faibles en saison pluvieuse qu’en saison sèche. La situation est alarmante pour les ménages pauvres situés dans la périphérie de la ville. Dans ces ménages, les quantités d’aliments consommées par individu et par jour en saison pluvieuse sont inférieures à 500 g avec des apports énergétiques estimés à 1 130 calories et 50 g de protéines. Il apparait donc que c’est pendant la saison pluvieuse que les ménages, surtout les plus pauvres, déjà en insécurité alimentaire, y tombent davantage. C’est une sorte de période de « vaches maigres » pour ces Kinois. C’est la saison pluvieuse qui est donc la période indiquée et pouvant rendre plus pertinentes les interventions à caractère social ou humanitaire tant du Gouvernement congolais que des autres partenaires. L’analyse qui découle des quantités consommées, des apports énergétiques et protéiques permet de confirmer qu’à Kinshasa, comme dans la quasi-totalité des pays du Tiers-Monde, les modes de consommation sont caractérisés par une forte consommation relative de céréales et/ou de racines et tubercules, complétés parfois par des produits riches en protéines, essentiellement les légumineuses. Il apparait ainsi clairement que les modes de consommation des Kinois s’inspirent des modèles traditionnels ruraux, tant pour les ménages situés dans la partie urbaine de la ville que ceux de la périphérie.

Vu l'état actuel de la vulnérabilité de l'agriculture et de l'économie dans cette commune, il s'avère important de connaître les contraintes rencontrées par les adoptants du fruit de la passion en tenant compte de l'environnement dans lequel se pratique sa culture.

La femme vietnamienne a depuis très longtemps assuré un rôle très important dans le développement socio-économique et culturel du Vietnam. Toutefois, en raison d’une forme de paternalisme lié à des aspects sociaux et culturels, les femmes n’ont pas été autorisées à jouer un rôle prépondérant dans les métiers traditionnels des entreprises rurales développées au Vietnam. Aujourd’hui, avec le changement des conditions économiques et sociales, on assiste à une participation accrue des femmes dans les activités autrefois réservées aux hommes comme la production directe, le commerce et même la gestion de l’entreprise. Au travers d’une recherche empirique dans les petites entreprises d’artisanat d’art des communes où se trouvent des villages traditionnels célèbres du Vietnam, on peut observer le changement dans le rôle exercé par les femmes. Cela doit néanmoins encore être accompagné par des politiques convenables capables de réduire l’inégalité du genre dans les activités de métier traditionnel et contribuer ainsi à un développement rural équilibré.

Since migration was mentioned as a pattern of development, the debates have never ended. In Vietnam, the industrial zone has been developed rapidly for more than 20 years. However, the rate of migrant labor is high. Based on push and pull theory of migration the study is to find the reasons that push or pull rural labors to migrate to industrial zones. By surveying 190 migrants in industrial zone, the study found that the employment in the zones is not stable in the long run. Migration not always driven by poor economic condition of the houhsehold in the areas of origin, it is the way of life of young rural labor and the migrants in the zones seem to be pulled rather than pushed.

Cooperative organisations play an important role in the peacebuilding efforts undertaken in the wake of the Rwanda genocide in1994. The genocide tore apart and destroyed large parts of the country’s socio-economic and institutional foundations, its consequences are still evident. Coffee is the main source of income for approximatively 500.000 households. The paper aimed to analyze the impact of coffee cooperatives and the coffee washing stations in the peacebuilding socio-economic changes of coffee farmer’s members in Huye District, Southern Province of Rwanda. A research surveyed selected 70 small coffee farmers from 3 cooperatives to measure socio-economic development of coffee washing stations on the growers. Results reveal that cooperatives increase production and improve the socioeconomic households’ income (86.5%). Jobs are created for women and girls especially during the harvesting and the coffee processing (98.7%). When farmers are working together, a synergy is created among them, by disucussion, exchanging experiences, which avoide discrimination, conflict, division between antagonist ethnic groups Hutu and Tutsi (67.1%). Results reveal that coffee cooperatives promote a spirit of understanding each other and the tolerance between farmers (72.3%). Cooperatives provide loans to the members through the “rotating funds: Ibimina”. They also educate members through vocational trainings by enhancing and empowering farmers especially women and girls (97.1%). This is evidenced by the provision of adequate shelter, the observation of human rights, access to the medical insurance, school fees for children, undertaking entrepreneurial activities, unity and reconciliation between members, participating in the household’s incomes allocation. Cooperatives uses various strategies in peacebuilding such as working together to construct new schools and houses, land inheritance for women, clubs for peacebuilding and visiting each others (74.3%).

The study surveyed 100 retailers and 30 wholesale traders of charcoal. The information on their business was collected using a standardized questionnaire. The structure of marketing costs shows that transport and rental to civil servants are the main items in which significant efficiency gains could be achieved. Charcoal marketing is a wealth-creating activity as it generates positive added value. Our results suggest that any improvement in transport infrastructure in rural areas will benefit market efficiency. ___________________________________________________________________________ [less ▲]

The Cotton production of has enormous problems originate from external factors (higher fertilizer prices, the producer price fluctuation) and internal factors (internal credit, claims of producers of short period payment of cotton seed to creditors), whose effects influence supply of Malian cotton. This work intervenes during an economic crisis when measures have been taken to increase cotton production in Mali. The objective of this work is to analyze the effects of input subsidies and increase seed cotton prices in relation with the global market of cotton fiber on the performance of the cotton sector in Mali. Surveys were conducted with a sample of 240 farms in four CMDT zones with two villages by area in 2008 /09, 2010/ 11 and 2011 /12, and the data from the CMDT (CMD, 2012) were used to develop a matrix of Policy Analysis. The results of analysis showed an improvement in the level of competitiveness of the cotton sector in Mali, and the level of incentives for the production of seed cotton with a subsidy of 50 % of the normal market price and the price increase of cotton seed with motivating factors.
