Étude des changements de pratiques des pasteurs dans le Solukhumbu au Népal en relation avec le tourisme et le changement climatique

Abstract : If the yack’s picture is easely assimilated to the high mountains of Nepal, nack, zopkio and chauri should be as well. During a 5 month field internship to Nepal, I have sought to establish a background of pastoral practice in the Solukhumbu District, more precisely at two sites at different scales: one in the Jubing Village Development Committee (VDC) in the mid-mountain of Solu (2200-3900m) and the other in a part of the Khumbu between Namche Bazar and Dzongla in the high-mountain (3500-5500m). The aim was to highlight the changes pastors’ practices in these study areas and to know the reasons: retreat of glaciers and reduction of the snow cover (both proven processes in this region) and/or development tourism? These pastoral practices are totally different between the two study sites and do not allow a common classification. However, the origins of their changes – climat, tourism economy, development country – are similar and allow the comparison.
