1 Baobabs, réservoirs de vie à Madagascar

4 jul. 2018

Des baobabs ont été transformés en réservoirs d’eau dans le plateau Mahafaly. Cette immense étendue calcaire du sud-ouest de Madagascar n’offre ni eau de surface, ni lac permanent, ni rivières. Il abrite près de vingt mille habitants, qui appartiennent aux ethnies Mahafaly et Antandroy. Plusieurs centaines de baobabs ont ainsi été transformés en de précieuses citernes et sont devenus essentiels pour la survie des populations locales.

2 MADAGASCAR – Un monde caché

In première gegaan op 23 feb. 2020

Découvrez un documentaire unique sur l’île de Madagascar. Le résumé d’un voyage de 15 jours dans l’est du pays. Des expériences extraordinaires partagées avec les locaux et des paysages à couper le souffle auxquelles on ne s’attendait pas.

Dans ce voyage nous cherchions à connaître la vraie définition du mot “Bonheur”, c’est la raison pour laquelle nous avons décidé d’aller à la rencontre des villages les plus éloignés du pays.
Souvent critiqué, Madagascar a aussi de nombreux points positifs très peu mis en avant.
On souhaitait alors mettre en lumière la beauté de cette île et laisser de côté les points négatifs le temps d’un instant.

10 Vanilla Thieves Of Madagascar (Full Documentary) – BBC News

19 aug. 2018

The robberies are often violent. There have been dozens of murders in Madagascar linked to vanilla. Several communities have tried and failed to get protection from armed police. Some have taken the law into their own hands. Villagers say in a nearby village, a machete-wielding crowd descended on five suspected gangsters – hacking and stabbing them to death.
 
The killings have yet to be solved by the police. Locals say there is no will or capacity in the police forces to investigate the vanilla thefts – or the mob justice that sometimes follows.

As a scientist and bioengineer, I’ve always been impressed by Madagascar, regarding it as one of the world’s great “living laboratories.” There are many species of fauna and flora that are indigenous exclusively to the island including over 3 dozen species of lemur. There are also coffee plants whose beans decaffeinate naturally, and trees whose wood is termite-resistant. It’s also home to the periwinkle plant whose extract (vincristine) has been used to effectively treat cancers. We cannot allow deforestation and other ecologically related problems threaten to destroy this place; it may very well have the cures to many diseases and conditions.

13 Miners miss out on lucrative gains from Madagascar’s sapphires

1 okt. 2019

 
Most of the world’s sapphires come from Malagasy soil. Extracting these precious stones out of the nation’s mines is a delicate and dangerous task. Moreover, it’s foreigners, not miners, who benefit most from the work. The stones are sent to Sri Lanka or Thailand to be carved – a process that increases their value tenfold – while the Malagasy miners get only the price of the rough stone.

14 Guerilla Sapphire Mining – Ilakaka, Madagascar

9 mrt. 2015

Ilakaka in the centre of the arid, southern plains of Madagascar is a product of an explosion in Sapphire discovery and trade. In 1998 this sleepy town had a population of 40 villagers but now numbers close 60,000. Labourers have migrated in from across Madagascar and traders from around the globe. Madagascar’s sapphires resemble those from Sri Lanka as the two islands were once part of a single geological structure that was torn apart by plate tectonics. Concentrated by ancient rivers and alluvial deposits these stones are now found at a depth of 20-50m below the surface of the desert landscape..
 
Small, guerrilla mines account for the high frequency of fatalities in the region. Exploratory wells are sunk vertically down, upto 50m, until the sapphire rich gravel is reached. Men, spoil and gravel alike are hoisted and lowered down the wells by make-shift log and rope winches. The mines are dug simply with a sharpened piece of steel rod but without any installation or reinforcement they are liable to collapse. Boys as young as 12 are killed by cave-ins or asphyxiate in the tunnels.

16 Madagascar’s Vanilla Gold Rush

17 Why is vanilla so expensive? | The Economist

15 mei 2019

In recent years, natural vanilla has sometimes been more expensive than silver by weight. Vanilla farmers in Madagascar are cashing in—but violence, theft and volatile markets are threatening their prospects.

Read more here: https://econ.st/2W5qwNB

From ice cream to cakes and even perfume, vanilla is the go-to flavour the world over. In recent years the price of natural vanilla has shot up. At one point it was more expensive than silver by weight.

80% of the world’s vanilla is grown in the perfectly suited climate of the north-east region of Madagascar. It’s the country’s primary export crop. For the farmers, like Beni Odon, life is far sweeter when the vanilla price is high.

In 2014 vanilla was $80 a kilo. Three years later it was $600. Today it’s around $500. The price rise is due in part to global demand. The trend of eating naturally means that food companies have shunned synthetic flavouring in favour of the real deal. Beni and the other farmers are cashing in.

But things can change very quickly. Price fluctuations affect producers of agricultural commodities everywhere but vanilla is particularly volatile. In just a few weeks the price can jump, or plummet, by over 20%

Liberalisation is one reason for such movements. The Malagasy government once regulated the vanilla industry and its price. But now the price is negotiated at the point of sale which makes for a freer market but a more volatile one. It’s also a tiny industry. A single cyclone can knock out the entire crop within Madagascar. It’s also a difficult and delicate crop to grow.

The growers have to contend with another problem. Thieves are targeting the vanilla crops. Some farmers have resorted to harvesting the beans before they’re ripe but this produces a poorer quality vanilla and ultimately pushes down the price.

The combination of deteriorating quality and high prices is having an effect. The vanilla price bubble may burst. Big buyers that provide vanilla for the likes of Häagen-Dazs and Ben & Jerry’s are now working directly with farmers in a bid to gain greater control over quality. Other companies have started to look elsewhere for their natural vanilla. Indonesia, Uganda and even the Netherlands are growing the crop. For a century Madagascar has enjoyed a near-monopoly on vanilla. But this industry may be in line for a radical overhaul.

20 Madagascan Vanilla Trade Controlled By Chinese Businesses

Madagascar, the world’s main source of vanilla, has seen traditional farming methods upset by a recent craving for the spice in China. While the Madagascan government stands by, Chinese profiteers wreak havoc on the trade.

Vanilla was introduced to Madagascar by French colonisers in the 19th century, which brought cheap Chinese labour to the farms. Papa Be is a 66-year-old descendent of this first wave of Chinese immigrants. Like his father before him he practises artisanal methods and takes pride in his crop. But his trade is a precarious one. “As growers, we’re in the palm of those who have all the money – the owners and the buyers”, he explains. Now his homeland has discovered a taste for vanilla, which has led to a surge in demand for the spice. Enter a second wave of Chinese immigrants. The new arrivals are business people who control the wholesale buying and export of the spice and profit from cheap local labour. A lack of contracts with workers makes it easy to fire disobedient employees. “That’s how you manage workers here”, says Cindy, an investor who moved to Madagascar with the second arrival of Chinese immigrants in the 1990s. For President Rajaonarimampianina, who came to power in a military coup in 2009, the unpopular Chinese newcomers are a necessary evil. He needs foreign investment: “Our markets are completely open, and that means China too”, he says.

21 Deadliest Journeys – Madagascar: Dicing With Death

In première gegaan op 12 aug. 2020

In Madagascar, “rosewood” is at the heart of everyone’s desire. For illegal loggers, the last trees in the country are the main source of their income; coveted trees are the last on earth. In Masoala, a villager leads a team of five lumberjacks, the “festy festy”, “les petits malins”. For 5 euros a day, they have to face the torrential rains, mud, mosquitoes and oppressive heat. They have to descend from the mountain a log of nearly 500 kilos for three days. A grueling journey. To transport “the rosewood” safely, these men risk their lives in the rapids. This is the most dangerous moment in transport. Before they can use canoes, carriers must pass the rapids with rafts. The logs are then sent to China. In Madagascar, poverty drives thousands of peasants to the south of the island, “Ilakaka”, the largest deposit of sapphires in the world. For ten years, this Malagasy “Eldorado” has attracted students, the unemployed, taxi drivers, a whole population of underprivileged people who come to seek their fortune. As far as the eye can see, the ocher earth has been dug by hand , a multitude of manholes approximately 1 meter in diameter. Ilakaka, anyone can try their luck, all it takes is a shovel, a pickaxe and a lot of luck. To find precious stones, a miner goes blind down the well, digs, fills buckets that another man brings to the surface by a rope. All that remains is to pass this land through a sieve to hope to find the precious stone. It’s simple, but dangerous. Problems arise as soon as the shafts are a dozen meters deep and the miners decide to dig the galleries horizontally, without shoring. In this Gruyere that the region has become, collapses are very frequent and, regularly, minors do not come to the surface!

24 feb. 2019

La fortune ou la mort les attendent peut-être au bout de ce tunnel sombre étayé par quelques planches. A dix mètres sous terre – une terre aride et inhospitalière – des milliers de mineurs jouent chaque jour leur vie pour découvrir la pierre bleue qui pourrait les sortir de la misère. Nous sommes retourné à Ilakaka, 40 000 habitants, eldorado du saphir situé au sud de Madagascar. Il y a douze ans, Ilakaka ressemblait à un bidonville déposé dans un décor de mauvais Far-West. Les mineurs dépensaient leur maigre fortune en filles et en alcool. Les acheteurs étrangers ne sortaient leurs liasses de billets que sous escorte armée. Ferdinand, 10 ans, s’était improvisé négociant en pierres précieuses. Il nous avait présenté sa petite amie, Olga, 12 ans. Olga vendait ses charmes dans les bars d’Ilakaka. Que sont-ils devenus ? Ont-ils fait fortune ? A quoi ressemble aujourd’hui la vie dans ce Far-West, douze ans après le début de la ruée vers l’or bleu ?
