Nager en eaux troubles. Retour sur la place de la recherche dans des territoires traitant des rapports entre agriculture et qualité de l'eau

Abstract : This article takes a reflective look at our involvement as researchers in the project "Agriculture put to the test by water policies". Four study territories came within research project : the Vittel-Contrex impluvium ; the catchment area of the commune of Harol in the Vosges ; the lake of the river Sorme in the Saone-et-Loire ; and the bay of Douarnenez in Finistere. A "need for science" is expressed within the water management authorities and brings these four territories closer. But it is presented in a variety of ways : specialized expertise ; a request for participation in collective expertise and action ; retrospective analysis with more or less distance to the actors. There is interest and sometimes there are qestionings / reserves / doubts about investigation in social sciences, which often remains on the margin of the other surveys made. The sciences do not have the same legitimacy in the eyes of water managers. These managers expect surveys to raise uncertainties, but the research has also brought new questions. It is a discomfort experienced by the researcher, but at the same time the partnership with the water stakeholders enables new data to be accessed. The involvement of researchers in management situations has probably not resulted in modifying local power struggles, as these are simply moved on or are expressed in a different manner.
