Développement urbain et dynamiques des acteurs locaux : le cas de Kaolack au Sénégal

Abstract : From 1960 to the end of 1980s, Senegal organizes his State on a strongly centralized model, with for characteristic a strong dependence of local governments towards the central power. In front of the economic and financial crisis which appears at the beginning of the 80s, this model quickly finds its limits. The bankruptcy of the central powers and the little convincing results of PAS, create the decentralization (notably the municipalisation) as the allowing alternative to hold up the dynamics of the development.
In this context, the Senegalese cities are subjected to the necessity of cooperating with new actors to meet the challenges following ensue their dysfunctions.
So, since 1996, the municipality of Kaolack understood that the major stake in the urban development turned around the construction of new relations of partnership.
The implementation of the Committee of Development of Kaolack ( CODEKA), gathering all the actors, translates concretely the will to impulse frames facilitating a participative local development. The observation of the city of Kaolack illustrates the mechanisms which are on the base of this evolution; they notably put in light the new type of relations which maintains the political power with the civil society.
