No to fatality! ... is it possible?

Abstract : The risk of desertification is a scourge affecting the territories of the Tunisian South. The Institute of Arid Regions Medenine - Tunisia has expressed for the last five years its intention to create a regional observatory to fight against desertification to revalue the territories of the Tunisian Southeast through strategies of communication between national and international, individual and collective, and private and public development actors. However, conflicts between actors make thee passage to action difficult. The gradual disengagement of the State, mass exodus, the rise of unemployment and the increase in the presence of the private sector are observed furthermore in the Tunisian context at the level of territorial development. Moreover, the emergence of private actors providing services there where local actors did not use to deal with a public operator, the complexity of sustainable development, the divergence in perceptions of the risk of desertification, etc. are challenges that rural and arid territory is required to overcome. The objective of this paper is to consider the importance of confidence in the management of risk including the risk of desertification to strengthen relations between development partners.
