Kouya Gniplo Tahi Hermann Nelson, Brou Ahossi Nicolas, Coulibaly Djakalidja

Located to North of Côte d’Ivoire, Dikodougou is one of the main suppliers of food products in this city. As a result, the pressure on natural resources in this area is increasing. The diachronic analysis of the landscape served to show the effect of anthropic actions on the land use of this locality. The purpose of this study is to determine the transformative agricultural practices of the environment and to identify farmers' perceptions of the environmental changes observed in the study area. The study is qualitative and quantitative. It was done using interview guides and a questionnaire. Various actors and 100 farmers from reasoned sampling were surveyed. It showed that land use has changed dramatically. The landscape matrix, initially constituted by secondary forests, has been degraded in favor of savannas, fallows and fields. These changes are mainly due to anthropogenic disturbances. Population pressure and unsustainable agricultural practices have led to changes in land use. Forest ecosystems have been replaced by anthropogenic ecosystems, threatening the biodiversity of this area.
