Abstract


The objective of this survey was to appreciate attitudes and to determine ignorance factors of Kalikuku riparian population on forest’s importance. The results have shown that this population ignores human devastating actions on forest (search for firewood, building materials and arable lands), the consequences of these actions on forest biodiversity as well as forest ecological role. This population’s information, sensitization and environmental education around forest should so be considererd as palliative solutions.

Author Keywords: Attitude, Riparian population, Community conservation, Forest reserve, Kalikuku.


Abstract: (french)


L’objectif de cette recherche était d’apprécier les attitudes et déterminer les facteurs de la méconnaissance de la population riveraine de Kalikuku sur l’importance de la forêt. Les résultats ont montré que cette population ignore les actions dévastatrices humaines sur la forêt (recherche de bois de chauffe, matériaux de construction et recherche de terres arables), les conséquences de ces actions sur la biodiversité forestière ainsi que le rôle écologique de la forêt. L’information, la sensibilisation et l’éducation environnementale de cette population autour de la forêt seraient donc envisagées comme solutions palliatives.
