The French continued to run the cotton filière after independence, until 1974, when it was nationalized. ... serve a distinct political purpose – namely, to ensure the continuity of cotton production for the state and the company. -- A critical analysis of the post-Rio consensus on environment and development which questions the role of particular forms of internationalized elite scientific expertise.
