Des forêts sans partage- Dynamique de l'espace et utilisation des ressources dans un district de montagne au nord Viêt Nam

Abstract : Since the collectivist period, Vietnamese state is increasingly involved in forest land management. Without prior knowledge of local management practices, state perception of forest evolution presupposes a linear relation between demographic pressure, shifting cultivation development and deforestation. This study, in Cho Don district (Bac Kan province), proposes different readings of vegetal cover organisation and evolution. The first part of the study, qualified as exogenous, is dedicated to human activities impact on forest cover without any consideration of people organisation. The statistical approach at communal scale does not help in determining factors of forest organisation. Spatial analysis at a smaller scale can show the relation existing between population, activities and forest distribution but does not allow a clear understanding of forest cover dynamics. The second part of the study, the endogenous one, is based on local enquiries and focus on social aspect of cover organisation. This approach shows the role of the state in agricultural production and its impact on forest dynamics. In spite of this evolution, the general scheme of cover organisation (in concentric ring) which is at the core of Tày people social organisation, remain the same along the whole period under study. Forest cover reflects the discrepancy between material aspect of the production which is directly and temporarily transformed by state intervention and the continuity of the social logic of production.
