The results show that the four main causes of the Sahelian droughts are as follows: sea surface temperature changes, vegetation and land degradation, dust feedbacks and human-induced climate change. However, human-induced climate change is seen as the major drought-determining factor because it controls sea surface temperatures, dust feedbacks and vegetation degradation.

    A partir de la experiencia de un proyecto especializado en los denominados “circuitos cortos de mercado”, el autor de este artículo presenta y desglosa las conflictivas relaciones entre la producción de la agricultura campesina  y los mercados urbanos. Es indudable, nos dice el autor, que en la actualidad y en un marcado contexto de modernización en los países andinos, existen nuevas oportunidades y riesgos de exclusiones. Por ello, hoy más que nunca, se hace imprescindible indagar alternativas e innovaciones de mercado para nuevas relaciones entre el campo y las ciudades.
