Etude de l'intégration des activités agricoles et des agriculteurs dans l'agglomération du Grand Khartoum (Soudan)

Abstract : The question of farmers and agriculture in African cities has already been largely studied. If the situation of agriculture in Khartoum presents similarities with other African cities, there are nevertheless interesting differences, one of which being the modes of starting and growing of these activities. By placing Khartoum's case in a global context, this research presents the interest of an original African agglomeration, because located at the meeting point between north Africa and sub-Saharan Africa.
This work takes into account a large panel of agricultural activities, in order to highlight the diversity of urban agriculture in Khartoum and to lead a comparative analysis.
The spatial frame of this work is the entire territory of the Sudanese capital, in order to question the viability of an agricultural use of space, in the globality of the urban territory.
This work will clarify the ambiguous relationship between the city and its farmers, in order to raise the question of the sustainability of agricultural activities in an urban area.
The work will highlight the constraints on urban farming and describe the elements allowing the sustainability of these activities and their displacements following each extension of the city. If the future of urban agriculture depends mainly on governmental politics, it is also strongly related to the socio-economic integration of farmers.
Finally, this study will consider the ambivalence of the relationship between the city and its farmers, which is exacerbated by the spatial and demographical growing of Greater Khartoum and by the Sudanese political and economical changes. This will lead to a debate upon the City itself and a broader approach of urban politics, land tenure pattern, along with insertion and adaptation modes of migrants.
