Notre présent est marqué par une pression inédite sur notre environnement. Il nous fait prendre conscience de la fragilité de notre planète ainsi que de la responsabilité qui nous incombe de la préserver. Comment concilier cette exigence avec le défi que nous pose l'explosion démographique ? Comment repenser un rapport de l'homme à la terre et à l'environnement qui ne soit pas dicté par les lois du marché ? Les termes de « gouvernance » et de « développement durable » contribuent à redessiner les contours d'un Droit visant à articuler les enjeux politiques, sociaux, économiques et environnementaux contemporains. Cet ouvrage tente de relever les enjeux majeurs et de dégager des pistes de réflexion et d'action en croisant des terrains africains et indiens dans une démarche interdisciplinaire et interculturelle. En promouvant un dialogue « Sud - Sud », il décentre aussi les réflexions globales qui restent dominées par le « Nord ». Our present is characterized by a heretofore unknown pressure on the environment, raising our awareness of the fragility of our planet and our responsibility to preserve it. How to reconcile this exigency with the challenge of demographic explosion? How to ensure a use of natural resources for human wellbeing that is not entirely dictated by market forces? How to rethink the relation between man and land and the environment? The terms 'governance' and 'sustainable development' contribute to a reshaping of the Law that is aimed at articulating contemporary political, social, economic and environmental issues. The focus of this book is on the major stakes involved and on the way to elaborate possible modes of thought and action through the exploration of African and Indian situations by means of an interdisciplinary and intercultural approach. By promoting a 'South - South' dialogue, it also decenters global reflections that continue to be largely dominated by the 'North'
Rural communities, the state and the market : a new-institutionnal analysis of tourism governance and impacts in namibian communal lands by Renaud Lapeyre( Book )

This PhD thesis aims at analysing the institutional governance and socio-economic impacts of tourism activities in Namibian communal lands. More specifically we test the relevance of three types of paradigms prevailing within the donor community. First, it is often alleged that sustainable utilization of renewable and non-renewable natural resources could contribute to rural development and poverty alleviation. In this context, tourism, based on natural capital prevailing in Namibia, is regarded as an efficient activity. Second, according to most donor agencies, mainstreaming rural communities within the tourism global commodity chain would enable them to better benefit from such tourism economic opportunities. Third, for such mainstreaming to be successful, experts argue that the private sector (private operators, accommodation companies) should highly contribute to tourism investment and development in communal lands. In particular, all stakeholders should promote formal and informal partnerships between rural communities and the private sector. In that case, rural communities could transfer their rights over a tourism site to a private operator, for the latter to undertake a tourism activity, hire and train local employees and involve the latter in project management. Finally, the operator would pay lease fees (royaltees) to the community. In order to test the relevance of those current paradigms we conduct an institutional analysis of the tourism sector in Namibia, in particular within communal lands (former ethnic homelands designated by the apartheid South-African regime until 1990). We proceed in three stages. First, we analyse the resources-activities-actors-revenues' sequence and show that photographic tourism activities generate significant economic value. We then present the respective role of all important actors in the tourism sector, namely the State, donors, NGOs and private companies, and argue that on the contrary rural communities still hold marginal power in the chain and thus capture a limited share of the income generated. Second, we build a new-institutional framework so as to better analyse the economic governance of tourism activities and therefore we propose a typology of possible institutional arrangements in tourism in communal lands. Within this typology, the thesis analyses two empirical cases in greater details. Third, we focus on a specific tourism hybrid institutional arrangement recently designed and promoted by donors and NGOs: community-private sector partnerships. We describe these, assess their impacts in terms of poverty alleviation and finally we try to explain why so far those partnerships have not delivered significant benefits for rural communities

Why are social sciences and humanities needed in the works of IPBES? A systematic review of the literature( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Despite the increased attention, which has been given to the issue of involving knowledge and experts from the social sciences and humanities (SSH) into the products and works of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), little is known on what the expectations towards the involvement of SSH in IPBES actually are. The aim of this paper is to close this gap by identifying the range of possible SSH contributions to IPBES that are expected in the literature, and discuss the inherent challenges of and concrete ways to realize these contributions in the particular institutional setting of IPBES. We address these two points by: firstly, assessing the literature dealing with IPBES and building a typology describing the main ways in which contributions from SSH to IPBES have been conceived between 2006 and 2017. We discuss these expected contributions in light of broader debates on the role of SSH in nature conservation and analyse some of the blind spots and selectivities in the perception of how SSH could substantially contribute to the works of IPBES. Then, secondly, by looking at one particular example, economics and its use in the first thematic assessment on pollinators, pollination and food production, we will concretely illustrate how works in a given discipline could contribute in many different and unprecedented ways to the works of IPBES and help identify paths for enhancing the conservation of biodiversity. Finally, we propose a range of practical recommendations as to how to increase the contribution of SSH in the works of IPBES
