Seminar: « Corridor » : A tool to think about conservation and emergence around Nairobi National Park ?
by: Véronique Fourault-Cauët, Jean-Fabien Steck and Alissa Jeridi
The Nairobi National Park is under pressure. The proximity between the park and a growing metropolis is a major challenge for both conservation and development issues.
The theme of the « Corridor » is used at the same time by opposite stakeholders. Urban planners, Environmental associations… build a discourse based on the definition of various lines around and across the park, always strongly linked with land tenure issues.The corridor appears to be a successful notion thanks to the international echo of the term, linked to ecological theories and, in a very different way, to economic geography. In both cases the use of « corridor » as a concept and tool underlines the governance failures on the park-metropolis relationship.
