  • Abstract of the lessons learnt
  • Differentiation was quite observable in 2005 and has been accentuated in 2011, furthermore in poor villages. Food security and income are worse in farms having exited from cotton growing because of lack of income diversification. Poor villages are those when the share of farms having gotten out of cotton growing is higher.
    A paper is submitted to a journal and awaiting for publication

    (La différenciation était observée déjà en 2005 et elle s'est accentuée en 2011, surtout dans les villages pauvres. La sécurité alimentaire et le revenu sont moindres dans les exploitations ayant cessé la culture du coton en absence de diversification de revenu. Les villages pauvres sont ceux où la proportion d'exploitations ayant cessé la culture du coton est plus élevée.)
    Un papier est soumis à une revue et en attente de publication
  • Opinion about the possibility of replicating result
  • Similar results can be suspected in other cotton producing countries in west and central Africa

    (Des résultats similaires peuvent être suspectés dans d'autres pays cotonniers de l'Afrique de l'ouest et du centre)
