OROZCO-HERNANDEZ, María Estela; GUTIERREZ-MARTINEZ, Gabriela  and  DELGADO-CAMPOS, Javier. Rural development and forest deterioration in the interstate region of El Alto Lerma. Econ. soc. territ [online]. 2009, vol.9, n.30, pp.435-472. ISSN 2448-6183.

This article analyses the natural and socioeconomic conditions of the interstate region of Alto Lerma through a diagnostic evaluation of the strengths, opportunities, weaknesses and threats that affect the usage of those areas that correspond to temperate forests. We provide some elements to re-think the forms of intervention and appropriation of the forest resources and propose strategies for the social and environmental support for rural communities. We have analysed cartographic, statistical and documental sources, as well as information obtained through interviews with government employees.

Keywords : rural development; deterioration; forest; region.
