    South Africa

    What is the future of food in South Africa? What might the food system look like in 2030, in terms of production, processing, distribution and consumption? Many people are asking similar questions and producing vision statements, policies and forecasts to enable anticipation and planning in a volatile system. They are all telling stories about the future – some optimistic, some dire. But these stories tend to be disconnected, narrated past each other to different audiences. The four scenarios contained in this document tell a more connected set of stories.

    La cuenca del río Los Puestos, área considerada en este trabajo, se sitúa en el extremo norte del departamento de Ambato, Catamarca, Argentina. Sus límites están establecidos por las formaciones pampeanas Ambato-Manchao (4.050 m.s.n.m.) al oeste, y por la sierra Graciana-Balcozna (1.850 m.s.n.m.) al este. En tanto, su límite sur lo constituye el valle de Catamarca y, hacia el norte, los Altos de Singuil.

    Most sedimentary plains occupied by semiarid woody ecosystems have low groundwater recharge rates and high vadose zone salt accumulation. Their cultivation has often led to drainage of water below root zone, displacement of solutes, and rising water tables, affecting, in most extreme cases, long-term viability of agriculture. To explore this possibility in semiarid plains of South America, we characterized vadose flow using chloride data in dry forests of central Argentina, in an area that has been subject to intense deforestation and agricultural expansion during the last century.

    El conflicto armado en Colombia ha dejado más de 3,3 millones de personas desplazadas que buscan refugio en las ciudades. Los estudios sobre desplazamiento en el país valoran las pérdidas ocasionadas a las víctimas, pero poco analizan sus efectos sobre las condiciones de vida de las comunidades de destino.
