L'approche territoriale au service d'une agriculture durable : des propositions pour agir !
Conférence / Table ronde

De 14 à 18h

Comment agir sur l’environnement des exploitations agricoles au niveau politique, économique et géographique pour que la transition agro-écologique s’opère à l’échelle des territoires ?

A l’occasion de la sortie du guide “Agriculture et Dynamiques de Territoires” produit dans le cadre du programme AGRITER, Agrisud International et l’Agence Française de Développement organisent un évènement pour échanger sur les méthodes, outils et bonnes pratiques qui permettent de créer un environnement favorable au développement d’une agriculture durable.

Quelles méthodes et outils pour assurer la gestion multi-acteurs et multi-secteurs d’un territoire qui prenne en compte les priorités du secteur agricole ?

Comment faire en sorte que les agriculteurs puissent évoluer de la manière la plus favorable possible dans un environnement porteur ?

Comment la société civile (ONG notamment) et le secteur privé peuvent-ils contribuer à la construction de cet environnement favorable ?

En plus de l’économie locale générée par son activité, quelle contribution le secteur privé peut-il apporter au développement des territoires ruraux ?

Autant de questions qui seront débattues par des experts de filières agricoles durables et des représentants des pouvoirs publics et autorités locales du Nord et du Sud, le 29 janvier 2020 à l’Agence Française de Développement (Paris)*.

Transformational Change in practice: Where are we coming from? Where we are going to?

During this side event, Mathilde Bourjac from CARI spoke at the Ecosystem Restoration Roundtable to share CSO perspectives on the subject.

.

.

“Mister Chair, Distinguished delegates, Dear colleagues,

My name is Mathilde Bourjac, I am from CARI, a French CSO.

Thank you for providing me with this opportunity to speak in this round table on behalf of more than 500 CSOs accredited to the UNCCD that are actively involved in the implementation of the Convention together with people and grassroots communities.

From oases scattered in the Sahara to the vast rangelands of the Sahel … from the savannahs of South America to the Amazonian forest … from the drylands in the Indian subcontinent to the steppes of Siberia, it is important to recognize the specificity of each ecosystems, and of all land users living in these ecosystems. There is no 1 solution to all challenges that humanity faces, no blueprint for land governance and management.
We therefore urge the Parties to recognize as such the value of the diverse initiatives on sustainable land management and on restoration from people and communities living in these ecosystems. These are the actions on the fields that really contribute to Land Degradation Neutrality.
We urge the parties to engage with farmers, with pastoralists, with indigenous peoples, with men and especially women to better understand what is needed for them to replicate sustainable land use and restoration practices.

To enable a global movement for ecosystem restoration, land tenure for communities must be secured. This is especially important for Oasis ecosystems which rely on scarce land and water resources and are exposed to climate change pressure. Progressive land policies exist, but they are not often implemented. Land tenure arrangements regarding inheritance cause fragmentation of the oasis’s parcels, preventing economic viability and therefore threaten the survival of these fragile ecosystems.
We ask our governments to adopt appropriate approaches to assess legislation, policies and institutions regarding the actual use of resources in vulnerable ecosystems, like oasis. Inclusion of civil society and research in such a review of oasis governance should be enabled through multi-stakeholder dialogue. FAO’s Voluntary Tenure Guidelines can be of great guidance.

For a global movement in ecosystem restoration, civil society must have the means to support people and local communities in their pursuit of SLM and restoration. We see a growing movement of farmers and pastoralists in the Sahel being inspired by Farmers Managed Natural Regeneration techniques showing tremendous results on landscape level and food production.

To stimulate this change at scale, what is needed is:

  1. Knowledge and experience sharing organized by a CSOs between people and communities that want to engage in natural regeneration.
  2. Support to CSOs to create platforms at village level for dialogue about where to graze and where to grow.
  3. Facilitation of CSO engagement with policy makers to contribute to creating an enabling policy environment.

The CSOs gathered here in India call upon the Parties to make more appropriate funds available for the replication of these kinds of practices and to help creating an enabling policy environment for upscaling.

During this COP, we see a lot of focus on the “Restore” response. However, the SPI’s LDN response hierarchy for land degradation emphasizes that preventing land degradation is far cheaper than curing land degradation. Restoration inevitably implies greater expense: the Avoid response in the LDN response hierarchy should remain the unequivocal priority.

Finally, we all need to act together to sustainably use and restore the land, for our children and our children’s children. We all need to engage together in the United Nations Decade for Ecosystem Restoration. Only this engagement will result in a transformative global movement for land restoration.”

Maquis des sciences : l’agro-écologie face à la désertification, la force du vivant…

74% des terres en Afrique sont affectées par la désertification. Les terres sont moins productives, elles disparaissent sous les effets des fortes pluies et des vents violents, elles retiennent moins l’eau, elles sont sensibles aux épisodes climatiques extrêmes, la diversité des espèces végétales et des êtres vivants dans les sols diminue. Le revenu et le bien-être de tous sont affectés par cette dégradation.

Des solutions existent, des solutions innovantes sont à inventer : l’agro-écologie nous montre la voie. Ce maquis des sciences donne la parole aux acteurs qui œuvrent en faveur de l’agro-écologie comme voie de développement à privilégier en Afrique…

Can we feed 10 billion people with agro-ecology?

Agrisud International invites you to exchange with Marc Dufumier, honorary professor at AgroPari Tech and recognized expert in this field, and member of the strategic council of the Ministry of Agriculture.

As we wonder about the earth’s living ecosystem evolution, agriculture holds a special place. With a dominant mode of production that has become partly destructive and no longer meets its promises, agroecology provides its effectiveness in many contexts to a more or less extent. Will agroecology be able to answer to new challenges and with which capacity to feed 10 billion people?
