This dissertation examines rural people's knowledge regarding changing conditions, such as decreasing soil fertility and increasing population. It explores how farmers, who depend on rainfed agriculture and are confronted with an ever-increasing population, react. The study presents the case of an ethnic group, the Adja, who live in Southwest Benin. The author concludes that Adja farmers have a rich body of knowledge related to agriculture. But this knowledge is also related to other phenomena (e.g. religion, social struggles and diversity, access to resources, migration) and is in a continuous process of change. "
