main factor

The recurrence of mudslides in the department and the impacts on the inhabitants and the search for solutions to the problems faced by local residents. The work done by the Agriculture chamber as a result of the departmental regrouping facilitated the choice and the location of development measures. The multiplicity of actors involved in this departmental approach is important: communes, metropolis, unions, agriculture chamber, farmers, researchers, etc.  The project managers note a positive development of the acceptance of soft hydraulics measures by the agricultural profession over the last ten years. In the short term, these works are also cheaper alternative measures compared to the implementation of conventional retention basins (but In the long term, the costs of compensation and maintenance are important).
