Abstract

L'objectif de cet article est d'élaborer un outil opérationnel pour la mise en place des politiques agricoles visant à accroitre l’efficacité de l’agriculture en Ouganda. A cet effet, des analyses effectuées sur les données d’Uganda National Panel Survey (UNPS) 2011-2012 ont permis d’élaborer une cartographie du niveau d’efficacité de la production agricole et des facteurs terre et travail. Ceux-ci sont les principales dotations de la population pauvre à partir desquelles elle tire sa subsistance. Il ressort que les zones abritant les unités de productions les plus efficaces en termes de production agricole ne sont pas forcément celles où la main d’œuvre ou la terre est utilisée de façon efficace. Des foyers d’inefficacité peuvent être ainsi repérés grâce aux atlas élaborés et fait l’objet d’un ciblage approprié en termes de politiques agricoles. The objective of this paper is to develop an operational tool for the implementation of agricultural policies to increase the agriculture efficiency in Uganda. For this purpose, the analysis performed on the data of Uganda National Panel Survey (UNPS) from 2011/2012 has permitted to elaborate a map of the level of efficiency of agricultural production and land and labor inputs. These are the main endowments of the poor population from which it draws its subsistence. It appears that areas with the most effective production units in terms of agricultural production are not necessarily the ones in which labor or land is used efficiently. Inefficient areas can then be identified by the atlas elaborated and targeted by agricultural policies.
