The Democratic Republic of Congo is among the last ten countries with regard to malnutrition. This situation concerns also Lualaba Province. This plague calls the attention of many since the potentiality of this country in terms of arable lands, agricultural programmes as well as texts already produced in the agricultural sector. Public power, agronomists, agriculturalists, NOGS, researchers, companies of transformation, communicators, etc should all them have a particular look on this matter. It is from the communication point of view given the crisis that this research work intervenes in the agricultural domaine. Trying to suggest a communication strategy would allow all participants to know what to do in order to boost provincial agriculture, more particularly that of Kolwezi and its neighbourhood. Here with Thierry Libaert and his peers, the following steps are to be followed: a) identify the target of communication, b) formulate objectives of communication in the agricultural sector, c) construct the message, d) establish the budget of communication, e) choose the canals of communication, f) evaluate actions of communication.

Abstract: (french)

La République Démocratique du Congo est classée parmi les dix derniers pays quant à la malnutrition. Et la province du Lualaba n’en est pas épargnée. Cette situation doit interpeler plus d’un, au regard de la potentialité de ce pays en matière des terres arables et des programmes, ainsi que des textes déjà produits dans le secteur agricole. Pouvoir public, agronomes, agriculteurs, ONG, chercheurs, entreprises de transformation, communicologues, etc. devraient tous se pencher sur le dossier. C’est du point de vue communicationnel, vu la crise, que cet article intervient dans le domaine agricole. Essayer de proposer une stratégie de communication qui permettrait à tous les intervenants de savoir comment s’y prendre pour booster l’agriculture provinciale, plus particulièrement celle de Kolwezi et ses alentours. Il s’agit, avec Thierry Libaert et ses paires, de passer par les étapes suivantes : a) identifier la cible de communication ; b) fixer les objectifs de la communication dans le secteur agricole ; c) construire le message ; d) établir le budget de communication ; e) choisir les canaux de communication. f) évaluer les actions de communication.
