Fonctionnement, dynamique et structuration de l’espace littoral en Côte d’Ivoire

Abstract : The development policies of coastal areas in Côte d'Ivoire have for several years facilitated a vast movement of coastal development and have contributed to the maritimization of the economy. However, they are still faced with the problem of integrated and sustainable management of the coastal territory. In light of the economic and socio-demographic diversity, the idea of sustainable and rational management of the Ivorian coast, taking into account the functional dynamics, involves researching the specificities of coastal towns and the various issues they raise. This contribution is based on a global and multi-scalar approach. It is based on secondary data from the corresponding literature as well as primary data from interview surveys. The approach adopted in this research favored the managers and the populations present as the targets of the survey. Also, she questioned practices, behaviors, changes, local and national strategies. The results of the study highlighted a strong littoralization which characterizes the intensity of the flows of exchanges and mobilities, a diversity of economic activities, an overexploitation of resources, a competition in access to services and spaces, and ecological changes on the Ivorian coast.
