Un commentaire sur l’article de E. Niesten et R. Rice les (concessions de conservation) sonnent-elles le glas de l’amenagement forestier durable?

Conservation concessions, as advocated by E.Niesten and R.Rice, suggest the paying
revenues to populations and the State so that they may renounce income derived from
forest exploitation. Apart from the questionable transformation of peasants as renters of
conservation, serious questions arise as regards the assessment of financial
compensation; the hypothesis of repurchase of traditional rights through contracts is
barely realistic. Similarly, the argumentation with regard to sustainable management or
the underlying economic pattern is not fault-free. In the event that environmental
concessions do not constitute a global alternative to logging, the conditions of their use
as complementary instruments to already existing ones remains to be defined.
