The Interuniversity Journal of Studies and Action-Researches for the Development of Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (Called in french Cahiers Inter-Universitaires d’Etudes et de Recherche-Actions pour le Développement de l’Afrique, des Caraïbes et du Pacifique - CIERAD-ACP) . (CIERAD-ACP) is an international scientific project of the Societé Savante Cheikh Anta Diop / SS-CAD ( University of Douala-Cameroon). The objective of this project, based on South / South and North / South collaborations, is to promote the updating and densification of scientific and technical knowledge on societal and ecological dynamics in the ACP. For, the body of existing scientific and technical knowledge of these heterogeneous and complex dynamics suffer from quantitative and qualitative insufficiencies, then from aging linked to a low turnover rate. This reality substantially compromises the contribution of these corpora to the process of ACP development. To this end, the general policy of CIERAD-ACP, a transformation of the Collection Studies and Research-Actions for the Development of Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific (CERAD-ACP) created in 2015, is to promote scientific Pan-Africanism. which involves the active participation of senior and junior researchers from both the South and the North in ACP development. It is therefore a multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary platform for restoring the results of original research related to field experiments, theoretical reflections and associated innovations, which can inform political decision-making. This initiative is therefore part of a process of strengthening institutional and programmatic frameworks, and then improving the planning and managerial capacities of developing countries in all fields. This strategic-resilient vision has allowed the initiative to obtain a broad consensus and to register the support of researchers from some twenty countries in the South and North. This Thematic Volume is part of this vision. A simple patchwork of seemingly heterogeneous publications, it nevertheless serves as a hologram of mental territory for a group of intellectuals with pan-Africanist accents, and sharing the desire to free the ACP from servitude of classical discursive schemas on development. Also, standing up against the single and simplifying thought, the contributors engage in an exercise of cross-fertilization of transdisciplinary scientific knowledge intended to illuminate the linkage of their geographical-cultural space of belonging to the plural and complex thought that a successful integration into the vortex of globalization. Concerned with economic growth, democratic modernization as well as human rights, attached to ethics, sustainability, humanitarianism and ekistics, the contributions show that the mechanisms and mechanisms of production / The counter production of development in the ACP is, more than ever, their breeding ground for action research at the beginning of the twenty-first century. For the Man of Sciences, this soil is none other than anthropiscence, as the most stimulating conceptual quintessence of the ideal background, socio-economic and ethnocultural signatures, then matrices of potentialities and capabilities of a society to produce and / or counterproduce positive socio-spatial transformations leading to development. Anthropiscence, a major heuristic innovation of this issue of the CIERAD-ACP, is therefore emerging as what the utopia of the perfect arrangement is to spatial planning, consciousness to phenomenology, reflexive modernization to society of vulnerability, the fantasy to love: simply, the stubborn dream of Aimé Césaire, the energy of reassembly.
