La territorialisation de la politique de l'eau est-elle gage d'efficacité environnementale ? : Analyse diachronique de dispositifs de gestion des eaux dans la vallée de la Drôme (1970-2011)

Abstract : River contracts and Plans for Water Development and Management are some of the new public action instruments aiming to improve environmental efficacy through regionalisation. Research suggests the hypothesis that this efficacy depends on how actors implementing these systems apprehend their regional dimensions. It proposes the idea of territorial feedback to indicate all the regional and regionalising resources resulting from dialectic and diachronic processes between regional constructions concerning water and projects for its management.The research explores the regional strategies used in drawing up and implementing these systems and analyses their implications in terms of modification of representations and practices and water uses, and hence the environmental condition of resources and aquatic environments. The demonstration uses the empirical case of the Drome valley over the past four decades. The body of the work consists of minutes of meetings, project documents and press articles as well as interviews and mind maps produced with water users and managers.The results of the research concern the mechanisms and conditions through which regional water management can be an indicator of environmental efficacy. Determining factors are provided: (i) assurance of synergy between regional development projects with those of environmental management; (ii) the use of identification dimensions of water management systems and (iii) the intentions and ability to act of certain managers. In this respect, intercommunity structures, and within these, the association of elected representative/development agents, act as the driving force in activating territorial feedback relative to water management.
