Usages des indicateurs de développement durable. Entre offre et demande d’indicateurs

Abstract : There exist a demand of indicators of sustainable development to which scientist from different disciplines try to answer through a supply. The way the supply matches the demand is far from being evident. To deal with this question we can take place at the interface, considering the use of indicators. This entry was chosen as the central theme of a meeting devoted to the use of indicators for sustainable development, held at Montpellier (April 3 and 4, 2006). We consider here the complexity of the relationship between the needs of actors, that may be formulated in several ways, and the supply by the scientists that can also be provided through several methods, including co-construction ones that are supposed to be well adapted for decision support purposes. It appears that the elaboration of indicators can be realized through various combinations of top-down and bottom-up processes, and that no optimal standardised solution can be identified. Finally, we propose that the indicator has a sole existence traduced by a trajectory in which it supports a social process around the question to which it is dedicated.
