Author(s): Gnénémon TUO
Abstract: Since the Ivorian socio-political crises (the crisis of 2002 and the post-election crisis of 2010), the cashew nut sector, which is one of the economic opportunities of the far north of Ivory Coast, has been dysfunctional in the application of the rules and regulations. Commercial standards of raw cashew nuts. The goal for us is to understand and explain how the rules, standards and prices ordered by the new regulations of 2013 and modified in 2014 contribute to stabilize the interests of actors in the cashew nut sector. The investigative techniques mobilized are the bibliographic review, the direct observation, the semi-directive interview guide, the individual interview, the counting of articles and the listening of recorded media. The results showed that the increase and the respect of the purchase price of raw nuts, the establishment of the Cotton and Cashew Council (CCA), the implementation of the new regulation and its progressive respect constitute among others, factors that gradually recompose the cashew nut sector.
