    Senegal

    À partir d’une enquête ethnographique dans les quartiers populaires de la banlieue de Dakar, cet article explore la construction progressive de toute une conceptualisation autour des inondations comme objet d’action publique. Il montre notamment comment les différentes formes de problématisation ont produit des référents pratiques et moraux qui permettent aux acteurs impliqués localement de se coordonner entre eux ainsi qu’avec l’État, ce qui amène à une certaine régulation des actions.

    Malgré la richesse en ressources naturelles, la pauvreté reste un défi majeur dans les pays d'Afrique. Le continent abrite 70 % des personnes extrêmement pauvres du monde, dont beaucoup dépendent souvent des forêts, des arbres et des services écosystémiques qu'ils fournissent pour assurer leur subsistance. Bien qu'elles soient souvent négligées, les forêts et les systèmes arboricoles sont essentiels dans les efforts de lutte contre la pauvreté.

    Iraq

    Land and property rights in Iraq are an important component of recovery, particularly subsequent to the ISIS conflict. The return of 3.3 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) due to the ISIS conflict are encountering claimants who were dislocated from

    Cette étude examine l’évolution géographique et temporelle de la violence impliquant les communautés pastorales. Elle s’appuie sur l’analyse de plus de 36 000 évènements violents en Afrique du Nord et de l’Ouest entre janvier 1997 et avril 2020 dans lesquels 206 groupes pastoraux ont été impliqués, pour identifier au niveau régional des schémas plus larges de violence pastorale au cours des deux dernières décennies. Celle-ci s’est intensifiée dans la région, comme en témoigne la forte croissance du nombre d’événements et de victimes cette dernière décennie.

With their numbers growing since the past decade, a huge variety of Chinese actors are now navigating their way in the country.

    Senegal

    The Senegalese government has emphasized agriculture and mining as strategic priorities for economic development since the 2000s. The promotion of large-scale agro-industrial and mining projects reflects a strong embrace of extractive capitalism, wherein the state relies on the production, extraction, and export of agricultural produce and natural resources as the basis for growth. Despite this policy commitment, several high-profile projects in these sectors have not materialised due to project failure, delay, or abandonment.
