|French term or phrase: acteurs locaux|
|L’objectif premier de la démarche de prospective territoriale entreprise entre mai et juillet 2001, avec les acteurs locaux de la « Charente des Iles », visait, malgré des délais très courts, à lever l’un des handicaps majeurs relevé à propos de ce territoire, par l’audit (« Conditions et moyens d’une gestion patrimoniale de la qualité de la plaine inondable du fleuve Charente, secteur d’Ambérac à Marsac »), handicap définit comme tel dans la conclusion du rapport final.|
This term crops up quite a lot in the text, which is a document outlining a long-term conservation strategy.
I could do with a snappy translation, the sentences are so convoluted I'd rather not add extra clauses if I don't have to! Something of one or two words would be perfect!
Dictionary has 'agents', which I don't think works. I thought of 'players', which would work if they were global, but I don't think cuts it at a local level.
All help gratefully received.
|the local community|
Acteurs locaux is just a way of referring to interested parties in the area - e.g. associations, elected officials, chambers of commerce, unions etc. It's a shorthand for the various components of the local civil society. "Local community" is perhaps the best and most natural equivalent. It implies a plurality of interested parties and voices.

|Thanks to all who provided solutions. I always feel slightly vindicated in asking when there's lots of answers, goes to show the question wasn't that easy (-: There's a lot of good ideas in there, but I have to confess I like vbaby's solution best. A bit of lateral thinking ... but I think it will work really well in this context. Thanks and regards to all. Mary|
