Systèmes agraires et Soutenabilité, un enjeu pour la préservation d'une eau de qualité en Bretagne, un problème d'évaluation

Abstract : The Brittany area is situated in the western part of France, and is currently facing sustainability problems. The end of the 20th century has been particularly significant due to the important agricultural growth and the stress on the environment. This stress has had important consequences on the environment, more precisely in the water context. Environmental degradation in the Brittany has affected the ecology, economy and the overall society of this area. The preservation of water quality has become one of the most important targets to tackle in order to maintain the economical, social and cultural development. Water quality is now considered as critical natural capital in the sense of the process of sustainable development depends on the maintaining of water quality. Our analysis is based on an evaluation for compatible agricultural production from a perspective of strong sustainability. We begin by facing a structural analysis of agricultural production systems that is conceptualised from an approach in terms of joint production applied to the ecological domain in the Brittany case through the model M3ED-AGRI. Our models constitute the support for a cost efficiency analysis allowing us to characterised and classify a variety of alternatives. In a local context, our research approach lays on the use of various indicators using information and communication tools aiming at encouraging participation among stakeholders in the process of evaluation. Hence, it is possible to delimit the constraints of agricultural activities and the motivations of each stakeholder favouring, therefore, the social process of learning.
