L'espace de liberté comme mesure synthétique du développement territorial durable


  • Claudio Pirrone
  • Erwan Charles


By discussing the concept of development itself, authors propose two synthetic indexes relying on estimation of potential : Development Space Value and Development Space Creation Under the weak hypothesis that any successful development improves future possibilities, changes in potential are a good development measure. In their path, authors show how development space is tied with freedom : a shrink in it results mechanically in indexes fall. So, “sustainable” and “economic” become two sides of same piece rather than enemies. Reliable in simulations, the approach is to be tested in real conditions, to verify full data availability and to secure calculating methods.
