Abstract

Le manioc est une des tubercules les importantes parmi celles cultivées pour l'alimentation en Afrique de l'ouest et du centre. L'article s'intéresse aux déterminants de la demande de manioc et aux perspectives pour cette culture dans le nord du Nigeria en estimant l'élasticité de la demande de manioc et d'autres racines et tubercules. Le modèle « Système de demande pratiquement idéal » (AIDS) a été utilisé pour estimer les paramètres. Les résultats montrent que la demande de manioc est inélastique par rapport aux prix. L'élasticité par rapport aux dépenses est positive bien que faible. Ceci témoigne de l'évolution du manioc, de bien inférieur à celui de première nécessité. Grâce à ses qualités de conservation, le gari, la forme transformée du manioc, est devenue très populaire. Ce produit qui constitue une excellente source d'énergie alimentaire ne devrait donc pas être seulement considéré comme une culture de subsistance ou la nourriture du pauvre.European Journal of Development Research (2009) 21, 435–447. doi:10.1057/ejdr.2009.15; published online 23 April 2009
