Normes de gestion durable et politiques forestières : Le cas de forêts de montagne en Europe

Abstract : To apply the principle of "sustainable development", the forest sector counts today various initiatives engaged at the international level. However, these efforts are still insufficient to slow down the degradation of the forest resources which is accentuated particularly in the poor countries. Thus, the current challenge of the forest sector consists in redoubling the efforts aiming at improving the concrete implementation of international forest arrangements. One of the ways currently considered by the international organizations is to encourage a better articulation of the principle of sustainability to the national policies and programs. Participant in this same objective, this thesis approaches the analysis of public forest decision-making process in order to examine the effective use of the concept of sustainable forest management, and more particularly through one of the principal tools: the criteria and indicators (C&I). In the field of sustainable forests management and forest policies, the central pillar of research is in conformity by the following subjects: conceptual aspects associated to sustainable forest management; the interaction of the C&I with a forest policy formulation model; the case study on the C&I for the forest policies in the context of the forests of mountain. The main result corresponds to the identification of a whole of C&I being used to characterize, in a total way, a forest policy for sustainable management of mountain forests in Europe.
