    La lucha de las mujeres por el acceso a la tierra es una cuestión de vieja data en la región. Factores históricos, políticos y socioculturales han sido parte de las barreras que han impedido a las mujeres, la tenencia y manejo de la tierra. Pero en las últimas décadas muchas de estas mujeres se han organizado para luchar con más fuerzas por este derecho.

    Aunque la dinámica, los procesos y el contexto son diferentes, la lucha siempre es la misma: hacer realidad el derecho de las mujeres a tener su propia tierra.

    Digital technologies are slowly spreading in agriculture sectors globally. But their adoption is hampered by the digital divide which requires significant public investments, improved policy and incentive frameworks to be bridged. Only after that, digital transformation will take place at scale. DAP is meant to assess the country's readiness for this digital transformation by identifying main bottlenecks, opportunities and risks for digital transformation. DAP will thus guide public investment and policy work to accelerate the scaling up of digital transformation.

    En noviembre de 2019, el Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Censos (INDEC) inició la difusión de resultados del decimotercer Censo Nacional Agropecuario (CNA-18) de la República Argentina. A partir de entonces, en poco menos de un año y en un contexto atravesado por la emergencia sanitaria, se presentaron los resultados preliminares de agricultura y ganadería. Este informe contiene, junto a las bases de datos que se difundirán en el sitio web del INDEC, los resultados definitivos y detallados, al máximo nivel de apertura posible, del CNA-18.

    Although renewable energy holds great promise in mitigating climate change, there are socioeconomic and ecological tradeoffs related to each form of renewable energy. Forest-related bioenergy is especially controversial, because tree plantations often replace land that could be used to grow food crops and can have negative impacts on biodiversity.

    Property boundaries have a significant importance in cadaster as they define the legal extent of the ownership rights. Among 3D data models, Industry Foundation Class (IFC) provides the potential capabilities for modelling property boundaries in a 3D environment. In some jurisdictions, such as Victoria, Australia, some property boundaries are assigned to the faces of building elements which are modelled as solids in IFC. In order to retrieve these property boundaries, boundary identification analysis should be performed, and faces of building elements should be extracted.

    This study provides empirical evidence on the links between urban development factors and the use of specific modes of transport in commuting in the Buenos Aires metropolitan area. The case study is of interest because quantitative research on developing countries is scarce and their rapid urban growth and high rates of inequality may generate different results compared to the US or Europe. This relationship was assessed on locality level using regression methods.

    The stabling of livestock farming implies changes in both local ecosystems (regeneration of forest stands via reduced grazing) and those located thousands of kilometers away (deforestation to produce grain for feeding livestock). Despite their importance, these externalities are poorly known. Here we evaluated how the intensification and confinement of livestock in Spain has affected forest surface changes there and in South America, the largest provider of soybeans for animal feed to the European Union.

    The state of water quality of lakes is highly related to watershed processes which will be responsible for the delivery of sediment, nutrients, and other pollutants to receiving water bodies. The spatiotemporal variability of water quality parameters along with the seasonal changes were studied for Lake Okeechobee, South Florida. The dynamics of selected four water quality parameters: total phosphate (TP), total Kjeldahl nitrogen (TKN), total suspended solid (TSS), and chlorophyll-a (chl-a) were analyzed using data from satellites and water quality monitoring stations.
