An interview of Laurent Vidal, Director of Research at the French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development (IRD), a major partner for the organisation of our yearly scientific seminar in Yaounde
The district of Ambovombe-Androy is strongly affected by climate hazards and food insecurity. Located in the south of Madagascar, it also provides an example of a traditional society which is deeply rooted in the lives of the population, with codified behaviours and social relationships. Tantely Andrianantoandro, Foundation research grantee, chose this context to study the conditions which would lead to an improvement in access to health services for pregnant women and their children.
In the context of development assistance, NGOs willingly lend their support to the “informal” sector. Analysing the micro-activities of the agro-food transformation in Ouagadougou, Roberta Rubino, Foundation research grantee, questions the strategy which aims to help traditional micro-activities at the expense of semi-industrial businesses. In her opinion, the choice of the survival economy is also the choice of the status quo. A status quo which maintains the state’s incapacity to act, which fixes society in a fantasised tradition and swallows up the hopes of young people, driven to resignation or exile. Roberta Rubino answers our questions.
On the occasion of our fifth seminar, which took place in Yaoundé, the French Red Cross Foundation gathered together more than 80 actors of humanitarian action in Cameroon over two days.
