Abstract: The work presented in this thesis is designed to better understand the relationship between cotton cropping, women’s role and food and nutrition security in a cotton growing region of Burkina Faso. Results show a high prevalence of food insecurity and child malnutrition and a dynamic relationship between cotton cropping, women’s daily activities, household food security and child nutrition. Women's workload or the time spent they are working in the cotton field were positively associated with the score of food insecurity, while their decision-making power on the management of family income was negatively. The quality of childcare appears to influence children’s nutritional status. Giving priority to community interventions to increase women's level of empowerment seems to be necessary to reduce hunger and child malnutrition in this region of the world.
