Un Continuum de Temps et d’Espace : Conception Communautaire des Systèmes de Collecte des Eaux de Ruissellement à Chenini, Tataouine

Puiser dans la sagesse ancienne pour une durabilité moderne : L’histoire de Chenini

Au cœur du sud de la Tunisie se trouve Chenini, un village qui témoigne de l’ingéniosité et de la résilience humaines face à des climats difficiles. Cette région, connue pour ses paysages arides et ses ressources en eau limitées, abrite depuis des siècles un remarquable système de collecte des eaux appelé “Jessour”. Ces systèmes anciens, construits uniquement à partir de matériaux locaux et de savoir-faire traditionnel, ont non seulement permis aux communautés de prospérer dans des conditions désertiques mais ont aussi préservé l’équilibre écologique délicat de la région.

Alors que les défis modernes tels que le changement climatique et l’urbanisation s’intensifient, la sagesse inscrite dans les pratiques de collecte des eaux de Chenini offre des leçons inestimables pour un mode de vie durable.
