    Les pays du sud et de l’est de l’Afrique sont confrontés à des pénuries alimentaires récurrentes. Pour lutter contre l’urgence alimentaire et éviter que les produits alimentaires ne quittent le pays, les gouvernements imposent des restrictions commerciales et interviennent sur les marchés. Dans ce contexte, les échanges transfrontaliers entre les zones défi citaires et excédentaires sont susceptibles de contribuer à la sécurité alimentaire régionale. Cet article est basé sur les résultats d’une étude menée dans la région frontalière entre la Tanzanie et la Zambie.

    Une équipe internationale de chercheurs a identifié deux gènes qui ont un rapport avec les résistances contre la trypanosomiase. La maladie est provoquée par des parasites unicellulaires du groupe des trypanosomes, qui sont transmis par la mouche tsé-tsé, et elle occasionne des dommages estimés à 4–5 milliards de dollars US par an. Ce sont particulièrement les éleveurs de bovins vivant dans ce qui est appelé la «ceinture tsé-tsé» de l’Afrique, qui va du Sénégal à la Tanzanie et du Tchad au Zimbabwe, qui sont particulièrement touchés.

    After three decades (following independence) of being overwhelmed by command-economy policies, in the 1980s the Tanzania’s gold mining industry benefited from policy reforms that started with the economic recovery programmes (ERP). These reforms freed in part the major means of production from state ownership. The accompanying paradigm shift allowed artisanal and small-scale miners (ASM) to register claims and retain much-needed foreign currency for rural development long before mining companies started operations.
