Farmers' vulnerability to global change in Navarre, Spain : large-scale irrigation as maladaptation / Albizua, Amaia (Basque Centre for Climate Change) ; Corbera, Esteve (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals) ; Pascual, Unai 1973- (Basque Centre for Climate Change)
Agricultural landscapes are dynamic environments which change in response to cropping and trade opportunities, available technologies and climatic conditions. In this article, we investigate farmers' vulnerability to climate-related stressors and crop price volatility in rural Navarre, Spain. [...]

Large-scale Irrigation Impacts Socio-cultural Values : An Example from Rural Navarre, Spain / Albizua, Amaia (Basque Centre for Climate Change) ; Pascual, Unai 1973- (Basque Centre for Climate Change) ; Corbera, Esteve (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals)
Large-scale irrigation is a form of agricultural intensification aimed at increasing productivity and adapting to climate change. However, we know little about how large-scale irrigation affects socio-cultural values over nature's contributions to people (NCP) in agrarian systems. [...]

Este artigo é originário de um estudo realizado na região sul do Rio Grande do Sul comparando unidades de produção familiar que desenvolvem uma agricultura de base ecológica, apoiadas nos princípios da agroecologia e outras unidade similares que não o fazem, tendo como objetivo identificar indicadores de sustentabilidade para a agricultura familiar. [...]
This paper results from a study that aimed to identify agri-environmental indicators, which could embrace the environmental, economic and social dimensions of 'peasant' or 'family farm' farming systems in southern Brazil. [...]

La introducció de la tecnologia moderna del reg en els agroecosistemes sovint condueix a una intensificació de les pràctiques de gestió del sòl. La irrigació moderna està destinada a augmentar la productivitat, però al mateix temps també pot tenir impactes ambientals negatius, com ara les emissions de gasos d'efecte hivernacle, la contaminació de l'aigua, i/o impactes socials, com per exemple, l'accés desigual als recursos naturals.

La introducción de la tecnología moderna de riego en los agro-ecosistemas a menudo conduce a una intensificación de las prácticas de manejo del suelo. La irrigación moderna está destinada a aumentar la productividad, pero al mismo tiempo también puede tener impactos ambientales negativos, tales como las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero, la contaminación del agua, y / o impactos sociales, como por ejemplo, el acceso desigual a los recursos naturales.

The introduction of modern irrigation technology in agroecosystems often leads to an intensification of land management practices. Modern irrigation is expected to increase crops' productivity but it can also have negative environmental impacts, such as greenhouse gas emissions, water pollution, or/and social ones, including for instance the unequal social access to natural resources.

El cultivo de la hoja de coca (Erythroxylon coca) que es realizado principalmente por pequeños agricultores, es el primer paso y la base de lo que puede ser considerado el agro negocio ilegal más grande en el mundo: la producción de cocaína. [...]
The cultivation of coca (Erythroxylon coca) by smallholders represents the first step in the largest illegal agribusiness in the world: cocaine. The literature on illicit crops generally considers the global and national factors that influence its expansion but little attention is paid to the local conditions where cultivation takes place.
