About this book

Language: French

With more than 140 maps, charts, sketches, photographs, and tables, this atlas offers an up-to-date and bird's-eye overview of protected areas in France. How do we preserve the environment today in France? With what tools? According to which modalities and which processes?

The result of three years of work and the mobilization of much recent data from management structures and the multiple actors involved in protection and planning processes, this book answers these questions, amongst others.

The authors, geographers, offer an analysis of the dynamics of conservation through the prism of a resolutely social reading of the environment. It is thus in the light of political choices, of the conflict between uses and practices of protected areas, or even of their social acceptance the provides the context to forty double pages (with two to six illustrations each) of this work. Representatively covering a large sample of areas in mainland France and overseas, they address emblematic sites in particular (Gavarnie, Mont-Saint-Michel, etc.), environments (wetlands, coast, mountains, etc.) and types of protection. In the latter category, they put into perspective a wide range of tools, from the most classic (national parks, nature reserves, etc.) to the most contemporary approaches (night environment, intra-urban nature, private initiatives, etc.). With the many examples and critical analyses, this atlas is intended to be a tool that is just as informative as it is thought-provoking for managers, but also for the general public, on the way in which environmental protection is taking shape in France and, more broadly, on our relationship to nature.

Summary in French:
Riche de nombreuses illustrations (plus de 140 cartes, graphiques, croquis, photographies, ­tableaux), cet atlas propose un tour d’horizon actualisé et distancié des espaces protégés en France. Comment préserve-t-on l’environnement aujourd’hui en France ? Grâce à quels outils ? Selon quelles modalités et quels processus ?

Cet ouvrage, fruit de trois ans de travail et de la mobilisation de nombreuses données récentes auprès des structures de gestion et des multiples acteurs impliqués dans les démarches de ­protection et de planification, répond entre autres à ces questions.

Les auteurs, géographes, proposent une analyse des dynamiques de conservation par le prisme d’une lecture résolument sociale de l’environnement. C’est ainsi à l’aune des choix politiques, de la conflictualité entre usages et pratiques des espaces protégés, ou encore de l’acceptation sociale de ces derniers que se déclinent les quarante doubles pages (fortes de deux à six illustrations chacune) de cet ouvrage. Couvrant de manière représentative un large échantillon d’espaces de France métropolitaine et d’outre-mer, elles abordent des sites emblématiques en particulier (Gavarnie, le Mont-Saint-Michel…), des milieux (zones humides, littoral, montagne…) et des types de protection. Dans ce dernier registre, elles remettent en perspective un large panel d’outils, des plus classiques (parcs nationaux, réserves naturelles…) aux approches les plus contemporaines (environnement nocturne, nature intra-urbaine, initiatives privées, etc.). En multipliant les exemples et les analyses critiques, cet atlas se veut un outil tout autant informatif qu’à même de nourrir les réflexions des gestionnaires, mais aussi du grand public, sur la manière dont se dessine la protection de l’environnement en France et, plus largement, notre rapport à la nature.
