Kirgistans Wallnusswälder in der Transformation : Politische Ökologie einer Naturressource

Les forêts de noyers du Kirghizstan à l'ère des transformations : écologie, politique d'une ressource naturelle

Auteur :

Description :
Mostly the collapse of the Soviet Union and the subsequent phase of transformation is associated with hopes of an improvement in the ecological situation in the post-Soviet states. The article takes the example of the world-unique walnut-fruit forests of South Kyrgyzstan to demonstrate that current transformation processes can also constitute a danger for certain natural habitats. It will apply a scenario borrowed from political economy to analyse the change in players, interests and patterns of resource management and forest utilization. The appearance of new players, the insecure economic situation of the local population and the erosion of the management institutions crystallize as major threats to the forests. - (IFL)
