La importancia de la escala territorial en los análisis de conservación de la biodiversidad y explotación de los recursos naturales : Una discusión a partir del Parque Nacional Korup (Camerún)

Summary, in English

We discuss in this paper the relevance of the territorial scalar approach in the analysis of biodiversity conservation and natural resource exploitation. We do this by using an empirical case study focused on the use of the forest ecosystems by diverse stakeholders in Korup region, South West Cameroon.
Our aim is to contextualize biodiversity conservation in Korup National Park in a larger territorial/environmental context of transformations resulting from natural resource exploitation in the Korup region. We do this by moving between two territorial scales, a local and a regional one. The local scale refers in this study to the Korup park and its buffer zone, while the regional one expands to focus on the Korup region, where the park is located.
We claim that any analysis and policy of biodiversity conservation in parks cannot be done without considering the regional context of territorial/environmental transformation. In addition, the analysis shows that, increasingly, the global scale is necessary to consider in order to understand transformations in regional and local environments.
