Définir un cadre méthodologique commun en cartographie participative : l'atelier collectif de Cabrousse en Casamance (Sénégal), de la théorie à la pratique

Abstract : The aim of this article is to show the collective multi-partnership dynamics, inspired by a participatory mapping workshop, organized in the rural community of Diembéring in Casamance, a southwestern country of Senegal, in July 2014. The purpose of this workshop was to catch the past and present organisation of the village’s spaces and their uses from the maps of the “terroirs”, or communal territories, realized by and with the local people of three localities of this rural community, Diembéring, Bouyouye and Cabrousse. This workshop made possible to bring out the traditional knowledge and know-how of the local people in terms of representation of their spaces, but also to highlight issues that are often difficult to apprehend, such as land conflicts. Coupled with other tools of field surveys (interviews, transects, historical profiles, agricultural calendar, etc.), participatory mapping pointed out the crisis that rice farming is experiencing in Casamance and its profound socio-cutural consequences on the Joola communities. Beyond the production of maps and new co-constructed knowledge, this workshop led to explicitly formulate the needs of the local people and their questions on the future of their terroirs and to accompany them in their advocacy (commitment of multidimensional dialogue ) with the local or deconcentrated authorities of the Senegalese State. It also askes the experts, scientific and technical, about their intellectual posture, and their commitment to applied research.
