    This article contributes to the debate on the interaction between private property of renewable resources and sustainability as perceived through its agro-environmental and social dimensions. Based on a DRC example and using an analysis grid derived from the capabilities approach, the article demonstrates the need for a social precautionary principle. This principle is to avoid that any decision related to land use impact vulnerability of the poorer population. In particular, the new DRC forestry code, which is being implemented, is confronted to this precautionary requisite. The article also shows the importance of governmental action and human capital endowment in renewable resource management. Classification JEL : 013, 055, Q01, Q15, R14.
