NERICA rice and returnees in Northern Uganda: intertwined stories

With the prevailing and continuing peace in the northern part of Uganda, more than 1,5 million Internally Displaced Persons or IDPs are expected to return to their original land. More than 20 years in camps have weakened the farming capacity of displaced farmers and returnees.

Les bénéfices du jatropha: un biocarburant au service de la communauté en Côte-d'Ivoire

Là comme ailleurs, l'heure est à la recherche de l'autonomie énergétique pour réduire la dépendance au pétrole et au gaz. Et pour asseoir cette autonomie, la production de biocarburants est apparue comme une nécessité. Le jatropha a gagné du terrain et s'étend sur plusieurs hectares de terres et de zones humides, véritables réservoirs de biodiversité que veulent continuer à protéger la Convention de Ramsar sur les zones humides et la FAO.

À l'occasion de la Journée mondiale de l'alimentation, 16 octobre 09, consacrée au thème 'Atteindre la sécurité alimentaire en temps de crise', voici un reportage en deux parties de 10 minutes chacune, par l'Union des Radios de Proximité de Côte d'Ivoire/Membre de l'AMARC, avec le concours de la Convention de Ramsar sur les zones humides et de la FAO.
