As the first project to focus on private protected areas (PPA), this research aims to reconstruct the history and to grasp the specificity of the phenomenon, particularly in terms of spatial distribution and of contribution in terms of protection of biodiversity in the inhabited territory. On a second level, it aims to update the landscape dynamics induced by PPA in the territories on which they are deployed. These include:
- Measuring the impact of the implementation of PPA on the physico-spatial reality landscapes;
- Updating motivations and representations of the people who initiated and carried PPA landscapes;
- Identifing, by linking the first two objectives, the evolutionary trajectories of landscapes induced by PPA and measuring the ability of intervention tools to act on these trajectories;
- Feeding strategies and implementation of PPA programs in inhabited territories.
Started in April 2013, this research will continue until 2017.
