L'ingénierie écologique au service de la réhabilitation des mines de nickel de Nouvelle-Calédonie : quelles actions pour quels résultats ?

Abstract : In many parts of the world and especially in New Caledonia, ecological engineering is a tool for degraded land restoration based on the construction of biological engineering structures and the development of a vegetation cover. Indeed, nickel mining causes many environmental damages. Therefore we focused on how ecological engineering can be part of a mining rehabilitation process in order to fight against erosion, to enhance landscape reintegration and to conserve New Caledonian biodiversity. Ecological engineering includes strategies to preserve endangered species. They aim in the preservation of plant populations in terms of size and genetic diversity. In addition, rehabilitation tends to reconstitute in the best way possible these degraded environments. An ecological value, in relation with function and ecosystem dynamics, is assigned to mine that best meet the rehabilitation objectives. The rehabilitation management can be improved by focusing future work on mines where the ecological value is the lowest.
