A Case Study in the Argentine Pampas 2022-07-19T09:34:26+02:00 Silvina María Cabrini cabrini.silvina@inta.gob.ar Estela Raquel Cristeche cristeche.estela@inta.gob.ar Ignacio Raul Pace Guerrero pace.ignacio@inta.gob.ar María Victoria Bitar bitar.maria@inta.gob.ar <p>In recent decades, the rural landscape of the Argentine Pampas has undergone a process of simplification due to the increased land allocated to crops, replacing pastures and grasslands, with a substantial increase in soybean area. In 2016-2017, a survey was conducted to analyze changes in cultural ecosystem services in this region. Pergamino citizens relate landscape improvement in terms of aesthetic and recreational values to increasing its complexity since they prefer more winter crops, grazing areas, native vegetation, trees, and birds. The significant relationship between sociodemographic variables and preferences for landscape attributes is consistent with the notion that aesthetic perception is constructed from personal experiences and background.</p> 2023-06-26T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Silvina Maria Cabrini, Estela Raquel Cristeche, Ignacio Raul Pace Guerrero, Maria Victoria Bitar https://ojs.upv.es/index.php/EARN/article/view/17014 Assessing the conditions of Rationality and Plausibility in the valuation of biodiversity conservation in a mega-biodiverse country.

In this study, we carried out the valuation of biodiversity conservation in Manu National Park in Peru (a megabiodiverse country), based on three representations: species, habitat and functionality. We identify sensitivity to scope in most of the attributes used. When we add socioeconomic characteristics, we identify that gender and salary levels affect preferences. Our total analysis shows that number of threatened plant species and functionality better fulfill both conditions.</p> 2023-06-26T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 José Yasser Dávila Garcí­a https://ojs.upv.es/index.php/EARN/article/view/14306 Hydro-economic modeling of the climate change and politics effects in Andean agriculture 2022-11-04T09:40:46+01:00 Marianella Crispin Cunya 20161595@lamolina.edu.pe Roberto Daniel Ponce Oliva rdanielponce@gmail.com Eric Rendon Schneir ericrendon@lamolina.edu.pe Esteban Eduardo Arias Montevechio esariasm@gmail.com <p>Climate change has been affecting agriculture activities, particularly, in the Andean Region, given its high level of exposure, sensitivity and low adaptive capacity. The adaptive response of Andean agriculture to a variation in water availability due to climate change was evaluated. For this, a hydro-economic model was developed that integrates two modules: hydrological modeling based on SWAT and an economic optimization model based on PMP. There is a high agricultural vulnerability to climate change, situation that could be reversed through the application of an agricultural policy based on the efficient use of water.</p> 2023-06-26T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 MARIANELLA CRISPIN CUNYA, Roberto Daniel Ponce Oliva, Eric Rendon Schneir, Esteban Eduardo Arias Montevechio https://ojs.upv.es/index.php/EARN/article/view/16076 Empirical analysis of determinants of coca leaf consumption behavior in Bolivia period 2006-2021 2023-02-02T10:16:57+01:00 Juan Marcelo Gutierrez Miranda juangutierrez@todoeconometria.com <p>This study consolidates knowledge about the determinants of coca leaf consumption in Bolivia. Applying conditional pooled models combined with Machine Learning techniques, use the Household Surveys available at the Bolivian INE. There are two populations at risk of becoming a long-term structural well-being problem indigenous peasant native nations and peoples, and those who are in extreme poverty. The compensatory effect appears by substituting goods from the basic food basket for coca leaves, which disappears when they have higher educational levels and better income. Smoking and drinking alcohol behave as complementary goods.</p> 2023-06-26T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Juan Marcelo Gutierrez Miranda https://ojs.upv.es/index.php/EARN/article/view/18068 Are short food supply chains a sustainable alternative to traditional retailing? A choice experiment study on olive oil in Spain 2023-01-30T14:16:23+01:00 Olda Lami oldalami@unex.es Carlos Díaz-Caro carlosdc@unex.es Francisco Javier Mesías fjmesias@unex.es <p>This paper examines the consumers purchasing behaviour on Short Food Supply Chains (SFSC) using a choice experiment for extra virgin olive oil, as one of the most regularly food supplied through SFSC in Spain, and a cluster analysis to segment consumers by their perceptions and behavior. Results reveal that consumers` distribution channel preferences are similar although there is a negative reaction to online purchasing. Additionally, since there are consumers willing to pay more for local and organic food, opens opportunities for SFSC development. Hence, the implementation of policies encouraging the use of eco-environmental labeling, can foster SFSC development.</p> 2023-06-26T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Olda Lami, Carlos Díaz-Caro, Francisco Javier Mesías https://ojs.upv.es/index.php/EARN/article/view/18764 Information networks and agricultural innovation systems: towards a new approach to local rural extension 2023-03-09T12:45:12+01:00 Carlos Julián Ramírez-Gómez cjulianmdr@gmail.com Venancio Cuevas Reyes cuevas.venancio@inifap.gob.mx <p>Rural extension has evolved from a traditional linear approach, towards a systemic model that involves the participation of public and private actors, configuring innovation systems. In this systemic interaction, information network structures are formed where producers establish links with various actors, both local and external to the territory. From the analysis of these networks, it was possible to identify key actors, determining the roles of promoter of innovations, opinion leader, facilitator intermediary and broker intermediary. The identification of actors and their function allows the implementation of a rural extension model at a local scale.</p> 2023-06-26T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Carlos Julián Ramírez-Gómez, Venancio Cuevas Reyes
