The latest Défis Sud has been published

In Africa, the demographic weight (one sixth of the population of Africa) and economic strength of Nigeria influence the whole continent. But Nigeria is a giant with feet of clay, which depends on oil. Nigeria is not competitive in the industrial and agricultural sectors, although agriculture accounts for 45% of GDP. It is in this context, that the Nigerian government began a program of agricultural recovery of 1 billion euros in 2009. This investment, which does not seem to worry about the future of family farming, will it turn Nigeria into a locomotive or a hindrance to regional integration in West Africa? What is the influence of this giant of Africa, what position has it adopted in structures such as the Economic Community of West African (ECOWAS)?
