Les inégalités écologiques à l'aune du choléra : étude dans la ville de Cotonou au Bénin

Abstract : This doctoral thesis analyses the ecological inequalities in the african cities, by focusing on the example of Cotonou in Benin, with regard to cholera. As a pathology related to the exposure to an unhealthy environment, cholera forms a relevant marker of the ecological inequalities under all their forms: whether they are inequalities of exposure to the environmental nuisances, access to urban amenities, capacity to question the public power as far as environmental nuisances are concerned or participation in environmental projects. Through the approach by “effect of place”, we showed that the differential incidence of the cholera between the districts of Cotonou is related not only to the combined effect of the environment and the socio-economic profiles, social practices, but also with the public policies, inspired sometimes of the international recommendations in the field of the environment, and that overlook the socio-political local context.
