    Abstract

    Les émeutes de la faim de février 2008 ont révélé la fragilité de la sécurité alimentaire du Cameroun. Selon les associations de défense des consommateurs, ceci serait lié aux importations massives de denrées de première nécessité, qui aurait pour conséquence une dégradation constante du taux de couverture des besoins alimentaires et une dépendance accrue à l’égard de l’extérieur. L’objectif de cet article, en s’appuyant sur les données de l’Institut camerounais de la statistique et de FAOSTAT depuis l’indépendance, est de montrer que cette dégradation n’est pas confirmée par les chiffres sur les importations alimentaires, dès lors qu’on prend en compte la mondialisation des échanges agricoles. Ensuite, cet article discute le rôle des importations comme instrument de la politique alimentaire du Cameroun, et pose la question d’une politique stratégique de valorisation et de promotion des produits alimentaires locaux.
