Diagnostic agraire préalable à la création d'un centre de formation en agriculture pour l'installation de jeunes agriculteurs dans le département du Nyong-­et-­Mfoumou, Centre Cameroun

Abstract : Cameroonian AFOP program offers young generations a professional training to enable them a better integration in the sector of agriculture, livestock farming and fishery, thanks to traning centers. The project of implementation of a new training center for young people in the forest of Nyong-et-Mfoumou department involves a preliminary study of the territory and its agricultural dynamics. The diversity of farms is characterized by varying grees of association of slash and burn cropping systems and agroforestry systems built around the cocoa tree. The degree of association in farming system depends on the operator's place in society, defined by land-law, family origins, seniority in the village and professional career. A good place in society has always been used to recruit workforce to secure family land and acquire new holdings, via perennial cash crops (cocoa, coffee). The targets of AFOP program in this area are generally the most disadvantaged in terms of social status and therefore in terms of agricultural means of production (available areas, equipment, labor force). Beyond a training content adapted to the situation of young people, the success of the future training center in this area is related to the way AFOP program will facilitate young people's access to means of production in the long term, especially as the size of young population in this rural area has a good chance to increase in the next years.
