Both in humans and in animals, stress is sometimes considered as useful for the accomplishment of certain tasks. But it might also have a negative influence on health, welfare or safety. We often impose on our domestic horses a lifestyle very different from their natural one. As soon as we interact with this animal, either during manipulations or in competition, we face him to various stressors. This stress can affect their health, their well-being as well as their sportive performances. Horses’ stress might also lead to a lack of safety for people handling them (horsemen, riders, breeders, veterinarian,...). Stress can be assessed by various indirect ways. Among all responses possibly shown by horses submitted to a stressor, we mainly focused on behavioural responses and on a physiological response: changes in cortisol secretion. Our first goal was to validate the use of saliva for free cortisol level determination. Secondly, we used this technique to assess stress level of both horses and riders during equestrian competitions. We compared riders’ and horses’ stress levels and we examined the potential relationship between the stress levels and the competition performances. The results showed that cortisol levels significantly increased during competition, both in horses and riders. The best performances were achieved by riders with the smallest increase in cortisol during competition. And, more surprisingly, the best performances were achieved by horses with highest cortisol increase. In this study, stress of both partners seems to have an opposite influence on their performances during competition: positive effects for horses (‘eustress’) but negative effects for riders (‘distress’). It would be interesting to test these measurements under other competition conditions. We also have tested the relationship between the horse’s temperament (scored by the owner), the stress levels in competition and the obtained performances. It came out that a higher increase in cortisol is more related to some ‘excitement’ rather than anxiety, and was mainly found in curious, motivated and active horses. This stress follow-up in competition should improve the welfare of the horse and his rider, and should probably also enhance performances achieved by the pair. In clinical settings, we identified the stress-related behaviours, that use to lead to a low ‘easiness of manipulation’. We also tested the relationship between temperament assessed by the owners, by the clinic staff and the stress-related behaviours. More particularly, we observed a predictive effect of a simple test (weigh scale test) on the appearance of these stress-related behaviours. This test would allow clinicians to anticipate potential difficulties during examinations and to prevent deriving injuries. Improving the stress measurement techniques and horses’ temperament assessment is essential for domestic horse welfare studies, as they occur in hospital, during competition, or in other stressful situations. Using physiological stress measurements, as salivary cortisol, is very useful and more reliable if they are used in conjunction with ethological methods.  [less ▲]

Le présent rapport d’évaluation du Plan Marshall concerne les terrains mis à disposition du développement économique. Plus précisément, il porte sur l’évaluation de quatre mesures du Plan Marshall 1.0 : assainir les sites d’activités économiques désaffectés (SAED) (1) pollués ou (2) non pollués et équiper les zones d’accueil des activités économiques (3) en zones d’activités économiques (ZAE) et (4) en zones portuaires. L’objectif commun à ces mesures est de mobiliser l’espace disponible et de contribuer à la mise à disposition de terrains en vue de contribuer au développement économique. Un tiers des moyens du Plan Marshall 1.0 a été affecté, via un financement alternatif, aux quatre mesures faisant l’objet du présent travail. Le rapport réalisé par l’IWEPS évalue l’efficacité de la politique à travers l’analyse des retombées économiques, sociales et environnementales, effectives et potentielles, liées à l’utilisation des espaces et infrastructures publiques mis à disposition suite au Plan Marshall 1.0.

Objective: A trial of the ten accessions for J curcas was carried out at regional Agricultural Research Center of Maradi in Niger, with aim to evaluate the performance of Jatropha curcas accessions. Methodology and results: Each accession was represented by two rows and each row has 15 plant trees of J. curcas. Data on the rate of survival and growth parameters of each tree were collected. Results revealed that there is no significant difference between accessions tested for height and diameter. Accessions Katil 13 and GB 14 respectively originated from Mali and Bisseau Guinea were best adapted for the Niger conditions. The yield value of 511 and 445 kg per hectare respectively obtained from Katil 13 and GB 14 in 2012.Conclusion and application of results: The Government of Niger has drawn attention to this crop and has launched a J. curcas plantation for seed production of 150 ha at Guessalbodi. National Research Institution. NGOs are also involved in J. curcas plantation for biofuel use. [less ▲]

Une étude expérimentale a été menée sur un cycle de Rankine organique de faible puissance (2,5kW). Les résultats expérimentaux ont permis de calibrer un modèle du cycle qui a ensuite été utilisé afin d’évaluer le potentiel de récupération d’énergie à l’échappement d’un moteur TDI pour 13 points de fonctionnement représentatifs. Les résultats montrent la possibilité de produire jusqu’à 2,4kW de puissance mécanique additionnelle. La fraction d’énergie récupérée (ERR) pouvant atteindre 6,8% de la puissance à l’arbre moteur.
