Abstract


This research has been dedicated to the study of possibilities to develop a buffer zone around the National Parc of Kahuzi – Bièga (Pnkb) at Bugorhe and Irambi – Katana, South – Kivu, DR Congo. The study has examined the possibilities to allocate bordering fallow and under-exploited land into the buffer zone, for farming and tree planting by the little neighboring farmers. It has shown that seven lots bordering the park with 920Ha total area provide rentable farms to 473 neighboring farms. Nearly 494Ha of these lots are either fallow or under-exploited, which is about 53,7%, and are likely to be transformed into a buffer zone upon negotiating with land owners for buyout.

Author Keywords: development, buffer zone, national parc, kahuzi – biega.


Abstract: (french)


La présente recherche s’est consacrée à l’étude des possibilités d’aménager une zone tampon autour du Parc National de Kahuzi - Biega (PNKB) à Bugorhe et Irambi – Katana, au Sud-Kivu, RD Congo. L’étude a analysé les possibilités d’affecter les Concessions-Fermes limitrophes en friche et sous-exploitées en une zone tampon, pour les champs des cultures et boisements des petits paysans des alentours. Elle a révélé que 7 concessions adjacentes au Parc avec une superficie totale de 920Ha accordent des champs de location à 473 paysans riverains. De ces terres, 494ha sont en friche et sous- exploitées, soit 53,7% et susceptibles d’être transformées en une zone tampon après négociation avec leurs propriétaires pour achat.

Author Keywords: aménagement, zone tampon, parc national, kahuzi-biega.
