Promoting the Territories and Development

In Africa, the conception and approach to governance and development have very often snubbed territories and their dynamics. Indeed, centralized development management has long characterized the socio-economic planning of States. At the same time, development policies and models have often been marked by their extroverted nature, which creates a strong dependence of the continent on the rest of the world.

Today, only an opposite approach - with processes based on local dynamics - can produce development that reconciles the triple requirement of social cohesion, economic efficiency and environmental protection. In this respect, the territory certainly has an essential and irreplaceable role as a major actor in the qualitative changes expected in Africa at the political, institutional, economic, social and environmental levels.
