Des fermes forestières en métayage sur le territoire public québécois : vers un outil d'évaluation pour les communautés
|Abstract:||For years, rural Quebec communities that depend on forestry have had to cope with socioeconomic problems. To overcome this situation, the delegation of forest management decision making to local communities is often suggested as part of the solution. The forest tenant farm formula, which is being applied to the Forêt modèle du Bas-Saint-Laurent, represents a conceivable method for the delegation of authority in this particular context. Our research has been carried out with the intention of transposing this formula to public forest lands. Our main objective is to develop a tool that will enable forest communities to evaluate the territorial and social potential of a public forest in view of establishing forest tenant farms. This evaluation tool was designed using data collected from a document review, various interviews, a focus group and a postal survey. It includes the main biophysical, economic, social and institutional success factors for the establishment of forest tenant farms. Our tool proposes an analytical framework for management models that differ from existing formulas on public land. Most of all, it is an instrument to facilitate evaluation and decision making by communities in reference to the forestry potential of their territory.|
