Portraits de l’agriculture familiale en Afrique de l’Ouest

Su Fei Tan and Bara Gueye eds

Issue paper, 36 pages

This paper shows that the stereotyped image of family farming as archaic and hide-bound is fase through presenting three family farms, in Ghana, Senegal and Mali. Like the case studies presented, throughout West Africa there are many examples of small-scale producers who have established economically viable farms And who are contributing to the sustainable management of local natural resources. This paper is part of IIEDs programme on the transformations in West African agriculture and the future of family farms.
