Les représentations de l’activité agricole dans les projets de territoires périurbains : exemple de trois Pays en Midi-Pyrénées

Abstract : Representations of farming in exurban development projects. This paper results from an on-going research on the interconnections between rural development processes and farming development in the South of France. (Haute-Garonne and Tarn departments). We elaborate a tool to classify the links between farming and territorial development in territorial projects, according to two geographical theories of territoriality. We have analysed the representations of farming in three sample “Pays” (cross-municipality structures with participatory local development attributions, plus, in some cases, land planning attributions) in the vicinity of Toulouse, the 4th largest city in France. These territories share the same twofold feature: a deep and increasing intertwining of urban development and rural land uses, and the preservation of their rural character as an identity label. In each case, we have examined the local territory project and operation documentation, and conducted interviews with the major actors in territorial planning and farming development institutions in the area. This research leads to a comparative assessment of the underlying creative thinking in each territorial project, and more particularly how farming activities and land use are included in the different territorial projects.
