Article
Full-text available
In Tunisia, mountain territories have been little concerned in recent decades by rural and agricultural development policies. Moreover, they have been partially addressed in scientific productions, which have often only proposed reflections on pastoralism or the degradation of forest resources. While the lack of knowledge about them is an additiona...
Article
Full-text available
For several decades, the "modernization" of the agricultural sector in the Andean region has favoured the development of the agro-industrial model and the spread of polluting agricultural practices. However, at the same time, farmers and the urban population are increasingly mobilizing for a healthy, diversified and affordable diet. In this context...
Article
Full-text available
While the peasant populations of the Ecuadorian Sierra have been marked by multiple constraints in their history, for thirty years, the liberal policies that aimed at the “modernization” of the primary sector of the economy in Ecuador have led to profound changes in the Andean regions. From fieldwork conducted in the provinces of Azuay, Cotopaxi an...
Article
Full-text available
For several decades, the Latin American countryside has been experiencing significant changes under the influence of policies that promote a capitalist model of rural development. However, we observe at the same time a growing mobilization of peasant groups who claim a change of economic paradigm and a better recognition of family farming. In this...
Article
Full-text available
In Ecuador, the debate on the future of family farming is still very important because of the high vulnerability of peasant communities, particularly in the Andean region, and of the worrying food situation in rural areas. In this context, the fight against crop pests, identified by the FAO as a priority to reduce food insecurity of farmers in the...

Ce dossier thématique présente les résultats de recherches abouties ou en cours sur différents terrains des Suds et se structure autour de plusieurs questions : comment les résistances prennent-elles forme selon les territoires ?

Article
Full-text available
Avec l’extension continue des aires urbaines et métropolitaines, le fait périurbain au Sud tend aujourd’hui à se complexifier par la multiplication des problématiques qui y émergent. Initialement perçu comme exutoire du trop-plein des villes métropolisées, ces territoires retiennent de façon progressive l’attention par la remise en cause des préjug...
Article
Full-text available
Desde hace cuarenta años, la degradación de los recursos naturales y el aumento de los niveles de inseguridad ali-mentaria, pusieron de relieve los límites del modelo liberal de desarrollo agrícola en los países del Sur. Por eso, inno-vaciones sociotécnicas deben ser llevadas a fin de promover la transición de los territorios rurales. Desde un punt...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Le séminaire FONCIMED 2020 est centré sur l’actualité des formes foncières héritées, au regard des enjeux contemporains de la montagne méditerranéenne. Vu l’ascendance de l’économie résidentielle ou touristique sur les activités traditionnellement rurales (culture, élevage, forêt), les permanences foncières des zones de montagne sont-elles une prot...

Qu’il s’agisse d’oppositions à l’industrie minière, de manifestations contre l’agro-industrie, d’actions collectives contre l’installation de mégaprojets, ou de la défense d’espaces de vie et de paysages marqueurs d’identités singulières, les campagnes des pays des Suds sont le théâtre de formes variées de résistance territoriales (Guerin-Pace et M...

Chapter
Full-text available
Les campagnes des pays des Suds ont longtemps été étudiées au prisme de leur fonction productive. Toutefois, comme l’insécurité alimentaire ne relève pas seulement d’une question de production mais d’autres facteurs, tels que la vulnérabilité économique des populations (Sen, 1982) ou la circulation des denrées, Jean-Louis Chaléard a perçu les limit...
Article
Full-text available
En los Andes ecuatorianos, la agricultura familiar se encuentra desde hace varias décadas en una situación de gran vulnerabilidad. A pesar de la reciente renovación del discurso político en Ecuador y del advenimiento de la era del “Buen Vivir”, el auge de la minería constituye un factor adicional de esta vulnerabilidad. En este contexto, el present...
Article
Full-text available
Desde hace 30 años, los territorios rurales de los Andes ecuatorianos han sido afectados por un proceso de “modernización” agrícola. Mientras que las especializaciones productivas y el uso masivo de pesticidas químicos tuvieron efectos nefastos en el medioambiente, el declive de las prácticas colectivas y la desestructuración de los grupos campesin...

En Ecuador, desde la promulgación de la Constitución de 2008, la naturaleza es sujeto de derecho. Sin embargo, su mega-diversidad está amenazada por el extractivismo petrolero, minero, forestal o agroindustrial, lo que lleva a debates y conflictos en el país entre quienes promueven la preservación de los bienes comunes y los patrimonios naturales y...
Chapter
Full-text available
Over the last decades, rural areas of the Ecuadorian Andes have undergone deep transformations in a liberal economic context synonymous with a weakening of family farming. Therefore, in some areas, particularly in the province of Azuay, peasant migration has increased a lot and has caused important agrarian transformations. On the one hand, cultiva...

The Andean lupin (Lupinus mutabilus), also known as Tarwi or Chocho in Quechua, is an important crop in several countries of the Andean Cordillera (e.g., Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Chile). Today, 8,000 to 10,000 ha of lupin are sown in Ecuador (mainly in Cotopaxi, Chimborazo, Pichincha and Imbabura provinces), yet more than 80,000 ha of land would...
Article
Full-text available
In the Ecuadorian Andes, particularly in the province of Azuay, peasant migration appears as a strong symbol of the vulnerability of family farmers. This emigration, in very large numbers in some areas, logically implies major transformations of rural territories evidenced by the drastic reduction of the cultivated areas which marks the increased v...

Dans les Andes équatoriennes, les effets de l’émigration paysanne sont partout visibles. Si dans la province de l’Azuay, on assiste à la diminution des superficies cultivées et à la réorganisation des tâches agricoles, on observe par ailleurs l’émergence d’une agriculture commerciale orientée vers le marché urbain régional. En procédant à la descri...

Project
The objective of this project is to study, in a systematic comparison, focusing on traded species consumed both in rural and urban areas, the representation of insect consumption in different multicultural Latin American countries. It also questions how, at a local level, gathering, processing, trade and consumption of insects may constitute a biocultural heritage and, at a wider level, which actions of heritagization involving edible insects are taking place or not. Eventually, how does this consumption reveal tensions between social classes and ethnic groups? By analyzing environmental and culinary knowledge, threats on insects’ environment and nutritional quality of insects, it finally aims at valuing this heritage, supporting local stakeholders in their practices and co-constructing knowledge to respond to food issues for the future.
Project
The project questions the specific role of family farming and collective organizations in the management and development of land resources in the Tunisian mountains. Its objective is to assess the extent to which formal or informal land management systems contribute to the launching of innovative agro-pastoral projects enabling the resilience of groups of farmers at a time of global change.
