Quand les inégalités régulent la pression sur les ressources forestières: Une comparaison entre deux sites dans la région SAVA, Nord-Est de Madagascar
AbstractThis paper examines the role of economic inequalities in natural resources management. It is based on a comparative study between two forest community-based management contracts in the North-east of Madagascar. The study underlines: firstly, that economic inequalities play a role via rules of control set up in the community-based management contract; secondly, that economic inequalities play a role through access to land. In particular, the most unequal site, where access to land is restricted through inheritance, is also the more sustainable one.
