Since the 1980s, a smallholder organization in Basse Casamance has been looking for solutions to the crisis affecting production systems. Its stand in favour of sustainable management of resources runs counter to the choices usually made by associations. It negotiates with various authorities and serves to express a collective will, gives otherwise subordinate players a voice and helps to build specific skills. Its mode of operation prompts a reflection on the workings of development and social change in African rural societies.
