Collective strategies for an agroecology of territory

The Sagiterre project aims to produce knowledge and identify avenues for research on collective strategies for agroecology. It is based on the initiative of the Graines Equitables cooperative, run by the BioCivam de l’Aude, which aims to produce organic crops on recultivated vineyard wasteland, in conjunction with livestock farmers, in order to make use of the fodder produced and the grazing areas. The researchers involved propose to analyse the collective organisation between cereal growers, livestock farmers and wine growers, to characterise the current benefits, identify the expectations of each of the partners and propose a more in-depth research approach aimed at developing collective organisation scenarios and quantifying the various ecosystem services associated with these scenarios. To this end, a joint problematisation phase with the partners involved will be carried out to co-construct the common questions to be addressed in the rest of the project. This phase will be followed by a diagnosis of the partner farms, including a spatial analysis of the resources mobilised (cultivated plots, grazed areas) by means of farm surveys. The assets and constraints, strengths and weaknesses of the collective organisation will thus be identified for the various partners. These results will be formatted using tools for representing the interactions between crops and livestock. They are then discussed in a third phase, supported by a co-construction workshop aimed at identifying courses of action for a future project.
