Abstract

French Abstract: L’objectif de cette communication est de démontrer que laReverselogistics (Logistique inverse ou logistique de retour) dans les Industries Agro-alimentaires(IAA) peut contribuer au développement durable du Cameroun. La reverse logisticsdans les IAAest au centre de l’approvisionnement des entreprises en matières premières non biodégradables dans la Supply Chain. La livraison retour des entreprisespar cesfluxpermet de produire et créer rapidement des revenus et par conséquent, le Cameroun y tire de la croissance économique, améliorant le bien-être des populations actuelles tout en préservant celui des générations futures. Cette démonstration est faite à partir de l’analyse de l’impact de ces flux sur les entreprises sur le long terme. Il ressort des résultats empiriques, que la Reverse logistics dans les IAA ne contribue pas assez au développement durable à cause de l’absence de gouvernance environnementale. Autrement dit, un laxisme notoire du respect des lois, de la réglementation et des normes dans les institutions publiques en charge de l’environnement.

English Abstract: The objective of this paper is to demonstrate that Reverse logistics (Reverse Logistics or Return Logistics) in the Agrifood Industries (IAA) can contribute to the sustainable development of Cameroon. Reverse logistics in the IAA is at the center of supplying companies with non-biodegradable raw materials in the Supply Chain. The return delivery of the companies by these flows makes it possible to produce and quickly create incomes and consequently, Cameroon draws there from economic growth, improving the well-being of the current populations while preserving that of the future generations. This demonstration is made from an analysis of the long-term impact of these flows on businesses. Empirical results show that Reverse Logistics in LPNs does not contribute enough to sustainable development because of the lack of environmental governance. In other words, a notorious laxity in respecting laws, regulations and standards in public institutions in charge of the environment.
