MOCTEZUMA LOPEZ, Georgel et al. Hierarchization of forest chains in the face of the vulnerability to climate change in the State of Mexico. Rev. mex. de cienc. forestales [online]. 2014, vol.5, n.21, pp.08-23. ISSN 2007-1132.

Climate change is a worldwide reality, and the forest masses of the State of Mexico, like those of other localities, play a decisive role in the mitigation of this phenomenon. Likewise, the prioritization of the productive chains of the forest subsector can orient decision makers and help them determine in what direction to channel the monetary resources in order to increase their activity. Basically, the hierarchization of those chains is supported on two dimensions: socioeconomic importance and competitiveness; according to the method of the International Service for National Farming Research, these are assigned a value of 100 points each, so as to make them easier to understand. The criteria utilized for the first dimension are the size, dynamism and specialization of the forest productive chains, and for the second, productivity and sustainability; besides, several different variables are considered for grading in the secondary and primary sectors on which they exert an impact. Once they have been valued, they are charted and located within a positioning matrix divided into four quadrants, and diverse strategies are defined based on this perspective. The analyzed productive forest chains with the highest score were those of the sacred fir, pine and red oak, with appraisals of 109, 96 and 90 points, respectively, obtained from the sums of the two dimensions.

Palabras llave : Competitiveness; socioeconomic importance; positioning matrix; forest products; primary sector; secondary sector.
