Keywords:Etic and Emic, Scientific knowledge and indeginous knowledge, Conbat against desertification

In this presentation, I will discuss the similarity and differency of scientific knowledge and indigenous knowledge through the case of scientist's intervention to farmars for improvement of land degradation (desertification) in Sahel area such as Niger and Burkina Faso. To considering this topics, I will use the notion of "etic" and "emic" which are used in cultural anthropology.
