[eng] Effects of price policy in cotton network in francophone Zone Africa: an empirical analysis - Price instability is a characteristic of agricultural markets. The reduction of that instability has been for a long time a major objective in many countries. The integrated subsidiary cotton organization in many Francophone Zone Africa (FZA) countries has intented to alleviate this instability. The purpose of this paper is to analyze relationship between integrated cotton organization and stability of real prices. There is also a contribution to the debate in progress between opponents and followers of the privatization of the integrated cotton organization in FZA. The stabilization-support device of the integrated subsidiary cotton in FZA is operative in the production organization, the management of farms and the technical innovations. The decomposition of effects of price instability into anticipated and non-anticipated shocks shows they have an impact on the cotton organization in certain producer countries. [fre] L'instabilité des prix est une caractéristique des marchés agricoles. La réduction de cette instabilité a été longtemps un des principaux objectifs affichés par de nombreux États. La mise en place des filières intégrées dans de nombreux pays en Afrique Zone Franc (AZF) a répondu à cette exigence. Le propos de cet article est d'analyser les relations entre l'organisation des filières intégrées et la stabilité des prix réels du coton en AZF. Il est également une contribution au débat en cours entre les partisans et les non partisans du démantèlement des filières coton en AZF. Le dispositif de stabilisation d'appui aux filières intégrées de coton en AZF est important dans les structures d'organisation de la production, la gestion des surfaces exploitables et les innovations techniques. La décomposition des effets d'instabilité des prix en composantes aléatoires et en composantes anticipées montre que les chocs aléatoires et anticipés ont un impact sur l'organisation de ces filières intégrées de coton dans certains pays producteurs.
