les dimensions territoriales du développement durable


  • Olivier Coppin

    () (labrii, ULCO)


Le développement durable a-t-il seulement pour vocation à exprimer la nécessaire préservation de l'environnement dans un souci de pérennité du développement économique ? Si le concept a soulevé bien des controverses, force est également de constater qu'il a souvent délaissé les dimensions spatiales de la problématique. Or, le développement durable est avant tout un objectif pragmatique qui doit répondre à des préoccupations ancrées territorialement. Reconsidérant l'axiomatique du problème, ce document présente une analyse des modalités d'application du développement durable en prenant comme cas d'étude l'agglomération dunkerquoise. Une région industrielle dont la durabilité économique dépend autant de la préservation que de la valorisation de l'environnement. Does sustainable development only intend to show that the environment protection is necessary to let the ongoing economic development ? If the concept has raised some debates, we must also admit this one has often forsaken the spatial elements of problem. Well, sustainable development is first a pragmatic object which must meet territorial concerns. Reconsidering the axiomatic of problem, this paper presents an analysis of the application modes of sustainable development by taking the case of Dunkirk. An industrial region where economic durability depends as much on the protection as the valorization of environment. * Communication présentée
