La soutenabilité de la coopération Nord-Sud entre organisations agricoles. Le cas du partenariat entre Agriculteurs français et développement internationale (AFDI) et la Confédération nationale des producteurs de cacao du Cameroun (CONAPROCAM)

Abstract : The Cameroon national confederation of cocoa producers (CONAPROCAM) and the agri-agency Agriculteurs français et développement international (AFDI) have developed a North-South partnership that appears as a virtuous cooperation model. Indeed it intends to go over a traditional development aid paradigm by enhancing mutual exchanges while proclaiming the objective of making the southern producer organization more self-dependent in the long term. Based on the experience taken from a mission of strategic planning support related to the service activities that CONAPROCAM provides to its members, the study offers to analyze this partnership from the angle of the dependence/self-dependence dialectics in order to try to understand its potential of sustainability. Using the key concept of reproductibility, this cooperation relationship is analyzed as both the exemplification of a dependence issue and a partnership which balance is unstable. Then it shows the extent to which the relationship between AFDI and CONAPROCAM is grounded on a producer organization's capacity building logic, working as a powerful though fragile lever for self-dependence, which maintains this partnership in its quest for sustainability.
