[eng] Agricultural production, attitude towards risk, and the demand for irrigation water: the case of Tunisia - This paper presents a multi-output production model that explicitly incorporates farmer risk aversion and its influence on agricultural production and land allocation decisions. The model is used to evaluate the role of irrigation water price on agricultural land allocation, output supply, and irrigation water demand in the area of Nabeul, Tunisia. Estimation results highlight the role of irrigation water policy on cropland allocation decisions, and the importance of farmer risk aversion in production decisions. [fre] L'article présente un modèle de production à produits multiples intégrant l'attitude des agriculteurs face au risque et son influence sur leurs décisions de production et d'allocation des surfaces cultivables. Le modèle est appliqué à l'évaluation d'impact du prix de l'eau d'irrigation sur l'affectation des superficies agricoles, sur l'offre des produits et sur la demande d'eau dans la région de Nabeul en Tunisie. Les résultats d'estimation mettent en évidence l'importance des politiques de tarification de l'eau et le rôle de l'aversion au risque des exploitants agricoles.
