Capital naturel, développement et durabilité à Madagascar et au Mozambique

Abstract : The objective of this thesis is to explore the role of natural capital in development strategies of African countries. In Part 1, we summarize what we know about the links between natural capital and development. Part 2 is devoted to natural capital as a whole, nationwide. The objective is to propose a framework for sustainability analysis. Through two case studies (Madagascar and Mozambique), we conclude on the need to measure the evolution of different stocks of capital from a country. We propose different extensions to this approach, the treatment of intangible capital in particular. In Part 3 we focus on the soil resource, at a finer scale. First, we propose different theoretical tracks for the economic analysis of soils. We enter into the complex functioning of this particular ecosystem. Then, we analyze the social profitability of an example of this capital investment in soil: agroecology in Lake Alaotra (Madagascar). We conclude with a perspective of the use of this work in the decision process.
