    Discordia y ambigüedad, son las dos palabras que describen la relación entre la minería a gran escala y el desarrollo. “Discordia” porque para la mayoría la minería frecuentemente ha producido efectos sociales, medio ambientales y económicos adversos y, para muy pocos ganancias significativas. Ambigüedad porque entre las poblaciones locales, así como a nivel de los profesionales del desarrollo, existe el sentimiento de que la minería podría contribuir mucho más. Los conflictos sociales y medioambientales producidos por el impacto de la minería surgen dentro de esa ambigüedad y conflicto.

    High elevation páramo (wetland) ecosystems in the Andes are important water sources for local communities and downstream agricultural and urban users. These headwater catchments, however, are often impacted by human activities (eg agricultural production) that affect both stream water quality and flow. Knowledge about water availability, quality, and use is essential for effective management but is often lacking, particularly in smaller mountain communities.

    This study adopts an institutional approach to analyze the way in which informal rules, in their interaction with formal rules, shape the use of forest resources by diverse types of smallholders and communities (i.e., indigenous people, agro-extractive and traditional communities) in Latin America. Attention is given to understanding the ‘working rules’, comprising both formal and informal rules, that individuals use in making their decisions for land and forest resources access and use, which in turn affect benefits generation and distribution from such resources use.

    This occasional paper is the result of research carried out from 2006 to 2008 on the effects of new tenure rights for forest-based communities in Latin America on access to forest resources and benefits. Focused on seven different regions in four countries, the paper examines changes in statutory rights, the implementation of those rights in practice, and the extent to which they have led to tangible new benefits from forests, particularly to new sources of income.

    The CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF) brings together scientists, development

    specialists, and communities, in nine river basins across Africa, Asia and Latin America, to address

    challenges of water scarcity, food security and poverty.

    Some CPWF projects seek to develop innovative technologies, new institutional arrangements, or

    improved policies. Other projects strategically aim to better define issues and challenges,

    understand processes and principles, and develop more appropriate research tools and methods.
