Notes
  • Cotton, Uzbekistan's major export crop, forms the backbone of its economy and is a major income source for farmers. However, it is frequently sustained that farmers are underpaid and deprived of higher revenues in favour of the state, which controls the entire cotton chain. The present cotton sector infrastructure offers little scope for substantially increasing farmers’ income. There are many other stakeholders involved in the cotton chain providing various services and accounting for their shares in revenues. A holistic approach, including a reform package for the cotton sector, is suggested as the best method to bring about positive changes for farmer livelihoods.Le coton est le premier produit d’exportation de l’Ouzbékistan, constitue la colonne vertébrale de son économie et est une source essentielle de revenu pour les agriculteurs. Cependant, il est régulièrement affirmé que les agriculteurs sont mal payés et privés de meilleurs revenus au profit de l’Etat qui contrôle l’ensemble de la filière. L’infrastructure actuelle de la filière offre peu de possibilités pour de réels accroissements du revenu des agriculteurs. De nombreux autres acteurs sont impliqués dans la filière, fournissent divers services qui représentent une partie du revenu total. Une approche holistique, incluant un ensemble de réformes du secteur coton, est suggérée comme la meilleure méthode pour apporter des changements positifs au niveau de vie des agriculteurs.European Journal of Development Research (2009) 21, 283–296. doi:10.1057/​ejdr.2009.3
