La place du paysage dans les projets d'aménagement en Asie du Sud : analyse du projet de Muang Xay (Laos)

Abstract : Laos is a developing country whose economy is closely linked to the rivers running through its territory. However, this proximity can be harmful during rainy periods and the urban areas are thus punctuated by the floods of the rivers. With a view to safety, the Laotian government is developing a policy of flood control, by financing the development of the urban banks of various rivers. The Muang Xay mission is part of this policy. Within this project, many issues related to the landscape have emerged: the reduction of the risk of flooding, the conservation of the environment and the development of an economy linked to tourism. However, many temporal, cultural and human factors led to a re-qualification of the place and work of the landscape designers within the mission, leading the final project to be very different from the initial ambitions of the mission. A better appropriation of the European knowledge and know-how, a use of the totality of the capacities and competencies of each type of actors are, as well as the intervention upstream of the project, as many keys which could have reduced the gap between the initial and final project. The difficulties encountered by the landscape architects within the Muang xay mission raise deeper issues on the place of landscape in Lao culture but also on the place of civil engineering in a context of climate change.
