International Union for Conservation of Nature | Page 9 | Land Portal

IUCN is a membership Union uniquely composed of both government and civil society organisations. It provides public, private and non-governmental organisations with the knowledge and tools that enable human progress, economic development and nature conservation to take place together.

Created in 1948, IUCN is now the world’s largest and most diverse environmental network, harnessing the knowledge, resources and reach of more than 1,300 Member organisations and some 16,000 experts. It is a leading provider of conservation data, assessments and analysis. Its broad membership enables IUCN to fill the role of incubator and trusted repository of best practices, tools and international standards.

IUCN provides a neutral space in which diverse stakeholders including governments, NGOs, scientists, businesses, local communities, indigenous peoples organisations and others can work together to forge and implement solutions to environmental challenges and achieve sustainable development.

Working with many partners and supporters, IUCN implements a large and diverse portfolio of conservation projects worldwide. Combining the latest science with the traditional knowledge of local communities, these projects work to reverse habitat loss, restore ecosystems and improve people’s well-being.

Governance is the keystone of sound natural resource management. Its core principles - accountability, transparency, participation, and the rule of law - are at the heart of the efforts being made at local, national, bilateral and multilateral levels to ensure that decisions that affect natural resources and resource users are well-informed and implemented equitably. There is a real need for all those who are involved in making and implementing decisions to understand the basic concepts and principles of governance and be able to apply them in their daily work.

La présente étude, réalisée sur les conditions de déplacement des populations dans le contexte du project d'amenagment de Taoussa, entend analyser la nature du « contrat social » entre l’Etat et les populations locales autour du barrage. Les modalités matérielles et le cadre juridique de leur recasement seront analysées en vue, d’une part, d’en apprécier l’efficacité, les acquis et les limites pour alimenter le débat sur le partage des bénéfices autour des barrages et, d’autre part, formuler des recommandations susceptibles d’influencer le processus dans l’intérêt de toutes les parties.
