1. Eversun, ZOSSOU. "STUDY OF LOCAL MANAGEMENT OF CONTINENTAL FISHERIES RESOURCES IN THE SOUTHERN BENIN" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Congress for Conservation Biology, Convention Center, Chattanooga, TN, Jul 10, 2008 Online <PDF>. 2019-06-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p240416_index.html>
Publication Type: Abstract
Abstract: The southern Benin is rich in freshwater (lakes, lagoons, rivers) wich are very important for the local communities because of interests they derive from fishing.
But the vitality and even the survival of this vital sector of economy is threatened by the drastic reduction of fisheries resources. It’s a continuous collapse of these resources and a dwindling of fishermen incomes. That situation leads to a problem of access to common resources which are scarce in a context of competition between communities with divergent rules and interests. This situation leads to a question: how the local communities who live mainly on those resources have reacted in their management?
This research project aims to study the various safeguards both traditional and modern which are established for resources conservation and the behaviour of the local population with these measures. More specifically, it will involve (i) identify and analysing within the local community socio-economic factors that lead to the degradation of fisheries resources, (ii) identify and analyse the various strategies and conservation measures both traditional and modern implemented for the sustainable management of fisheries resources, and (iii) analyse the behaviours of local communities with various conservation measures.

Abstract: The case for adopting participatory approaches to development communication and community media is by now well known, largely accepted, and widely implemented. Indeed, the research literature at this point promotes participatory communication virtually as a pro forma approach to development and community media, without much regard for factors that at times might question its practicality and wisdom. This paper reports on a youth video project in Africa where participatory approaches were intentionally limited in consideration of both the educational context of participants and institutional goals of the sponsoring organization. The paper explores the impacts, both good and ill, of limits on participation in the context of a developing country.

Abstract: This research explores the factors determining the success of democratization processes in Sub-Saharan Africa. Specifically, this research challenges the consensus that dynamics within authoritarian elites play a marginal role in the success or failure of democratic transitions in Sub-Saharan Africa. Using a most-similar cases methodology, this paper compares two countries, Benin and Togo, which did not follow similar political patterns in the 1990s despite their many similarities. Both states are former French colonies, which were characterized by a postcolonial history of successive military coups. Further, waves of popular protests in both states resulted in national conferences and multiparty elections in the early 1990s. Yet, despite these similarities, only Benin has succeeded in establishing a democratic state. The hypothesis of this research is that the armed forces’ decision to support or oppose the demands for political reforms largely influences the possibilities of a successful transition to democracy.

Abstract: The concept of "development journalism" was introduced in the late 1960s and proposed as a new press theory more amenable to developing nations. The concept has been criticized as conceptually vague and professionally problematic due to a lack of independence vis a vis the state. Despite this criticism, the concept has continued to draw adherents and advocates who claim that this practice continues to hold promise as an alternative to other models of journalism.

This paper reports on a development journalism project conducted in Africa among young women in terms of its potential contributions to development journalism. The journalism camp for girls was designed out of a framework drawn from the scholarship of development journalism and participatory development communication.

The findings indicate that projects such as the journalism camp for girls addresses many of the criticism leveled against development journalism, while suggesting a sustainable, viable, and compatible model of development journalism in the developing world.
