Résumé

This chapter focuses on what climate change means for a region like the Upper Rhine. The study focuses on the actors of the forest sector on both sides of the border of the Regional Natural Park of the Northern Vosges and Pfälzerwald. While climate change has been placed on the agenda of stakeholders and territories in relation to forest management and their positioning on the various wood markets, the uncertainties it introduces are the subject of differentiated social reception depending on the logic and set of specific stakeholders. Despite the great diversity of companies’ positions, an increasing number of businessmen and women are realizing that climate change is a major economic challenge, both in terms of losses to be anticipated and in terms of markets to be developed. Given the strength of economic imperatives dictated by globalised markets and the multiple sets of actors, the introduction of the climate change issue works as a factor of turbulence that does not necessarily and automatically benefit socio-ecological progress. As this study will show, an ecological cause like climate change may have perverse effects on the socio-ecosystems concerned. This observation, which can be found in the history of the environmental movement through many cases of ecological policies applied to housing, neighbourhoods and even many other sectors of society, illustrates the complexity of building environmental standards.
