The cattlemen of the steppe are faced with climate risks whose consequences
are at the origin of one of the essential mechanisms of the degradation of resources
natural fodder, thus making uncertain the food of livestock. Thus, faces to the
changing socio-economic and climatic risks, the pastoral society has implemented
different adaptive strategies to ensure the reproduction of its operating systems.
The objective of this study is to analyze the patterns of the use of the space
of the pastoral area called El-Bayadh in order to show how the actors adopt and
adapt the techniques of production available in order to ensure the security of
the production of their exploitation in an environment particularly fragile, hostile
and vulnerable. It is therefore to take knowledge of the basic strategies implementation
and the responses provided by the livestock producers to protect themselves against
the consequences of a difficult climate in order to ensure the conduct of the food
needs of their animals and the reproduction of their operating system.
