Description

In the last thirty years, the agro-export model based on a new technological package strongly dependent on inputs and which induced a marked process of agriculturization caused a series of environmental, social and productive conflicts, which seem to be showing contradictions. Among these, land use in peri-urban areas has received special attention due to complaints about the contamination and health effects that agrochemical applications could be causing to the population living in the urban-rural interface (IUR). The RUI is an axis to be approached in this experience since it is a theoretical concept and the physical space in which tensions take place that allow us to observe the meanings that are being articulated in the community: what is thought of this space (perceptions of the different actors), what problems it makes visible, how the new socio-technical processes are proposed, what problems it makes visible, how the new socio-technical processes are proposed.
