Reports & Research
Avril, 2022

The crucial event in the reporting period was undoubtedly Armenia’s war with Azerbaijan. On September 27, 2020 Azerbaijan started its war on Nagorno-Karabakh, a long-disputed region called Artsakh in Armenia, which lasted for 44 days. It ended on November 10, 2020, when Russia facilitated a cease-fire, apparently just after the Azerbaijani forces had captured most of the territories occupied by Armenia in the previous war in the early 1990s, plus a major chunk of Nagorno-Karabakh proper.

Despite urban population growth and diversifying food habits, UPA delivers an important part of urban food supply, as well as other types of services to cities, such as employment and waste reuse.

Latin America and the Caribbean

México ha transitado por un proceso de cambios territoriales importantes en las últimas décadas; sin embargo, las políticas de vivienda de los últimos años, las modificaciones constitucionales sobre la propiedad agraria y la falta de una aplicación rigurosa de los instrumentos de planeación y de Ordenamiento Territorial (OT), entre otros factores, aceleraron la expansión urbana sobre áreas agrícolas y naturales. Si bien los procesos de urbanización y metropolización han favorecido el desarrollo económico del país, también han tenido efectos negativos, tales como un aumento de la desigualdad
