La GIZC et le développement touristique : enjeux d’un principe organisateur pour la durabilité des stations littorales atlantiques

Abstract : Aware of the importance of tourism in coastal areas, conflicts of use, the deterioration of the coastal environment and the relatively small number of publications dealing with tourism stakeholders vis-à-vis the Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM), we decided to conduct an exploratory study on the subject. Our study area is concentrated on the Atlantic coast, a coherent geographical area, due to the relatively similar characteristics of the regions studied. We interviewed the senior management in four coastal stations and local actors who we considered representative because directly involved in the implementation of ICZM . As we will develop in this article, the growing attraction of the coastal tourism creates tourism concentrations and sometimes situations of “huge visitation”. However, some areas apply an “intregrated dimension” of ICZM to manage the pressure. Examples include the management of co-presence by means of local decrees, but also the sustainable development awareness established by local authorities demonstrates a formalization of the administrative organization. We noticed that all actors interviewed understand the importance of actions for tourism and put in place measures accordingly. It appears that the Atlantic coast stations studied are very much involved in ICZM, but that the tourism stakeholders have difficulties in adapting to an idea which may be too conceptual.
