ABSTRACT:

Several studies on the disappearance and monitoring of natural resource dynamics on a global scale show a general trend towards the disappearance of natural areas. Protected areas are not immune to this scourge. Thus, this study attempts to analyze the management of protected areas in Côte d’ Ivoire through the Kani-red Bandama classified forest. Overall, the study aims to assess the impact of human practices on the resources of this classified forest. As activities, the aim is to characterize the dynamics of land use in the classified forest and to determine the factors of these dynamics. The study is based on satellite images (Landsat 5 TM, Landsat 7 ETM+ and Landsat 8 OLI/TIRS) from 1986, 2001 and 2016, cartographic and socio-demographic data, and field observations. The preferred tools for data processing and analysis are remote sensing and GIS. The results show that natural areas under the effect of human actions are undergoing very advanced degradation. In 15 years, natural areas have given way to agricultural areas which have increased from 1% to more than 30% with an intensification of cashew nut cultivation resulting in the multiplication of cashew nut orchards. The classified forest of Kani red Bandama is under the influence of human activities reflected by the infiltration of agricultural settlers and breeders whose opposing uses of natural resources lead to conflicts.
