Lattice-work corridors for climate change: a conceptual framework for biodiversity conservation and social-ecological resilience in a tropical elevational gradient Ecology and Society
Townsend, Patricia A; University of Washington; ptownsen@uw.edu; Masters, Karen L; Council on International Educational Exchange; KMasters@ciee.org.
Rapid climate change poses complex challenges for conservation, especially in tropical developing countries where biodiversity is high while financial and technical resources are limited. The complexity is heightened by uncertainty in predicted effects, both for ecological systems and human communities that depend heavily on natural resource extraction and use. Effective conservation plans and measures must be inexpensive, fast-acting, and able to increase the resilience of both the ecosystem and the social-ecological system. We present conservation practitioners with a framework that strategically integrates climate change planning into connectivity measures for tropical mountain ecosystems in Costa Rica. We propose a strategy for doubling the amount of...

SOCIO-ECONOMIC IMPACTS OF SCHOOL CONSOLIDATION ON HOST AND VACATED COMMUNITIES AgEcon
Sell, Randall S.; Leistritz, F. Larry; Thompson, JoAnn M..
The number of public high school districts in North Dakota declined from 256 in 1970 to 186 in 1994. Thirty-one percent of the decline in number of districts occurred from 1990 to 1994. Eight communities (four pairs) that had gone through a school district consolidation and school closure during the last five years were studied. This paper presents the results of a mail survey of patrons who paid property taxes to the eight different school districts. Host communities were defined as those gaining the majority of the students from the consolidation while vacated communities' schools were closed. Community involvement, retail services, quality of life, and consolidation impacts for host and vacated communities were compared.
Tipo: Working or Discussion Paper Palavras-chave: School consolidation; School closure; Retail impacts; Community involvement; Academic impacts; Quality of life; Host community; Vacated community; Community/Rural/Urban Development.

The Effect of Social Capital on the Choice to Use Sustainable Agricultural Practices AgEcon
Munasib, Abdul B.A.; Jordan, Jeffrey L..
We investigate whether social capital in the form of community involvement affects farmers’ choice to use sustainable agricultural practices. Using associational memberships as a measure of community involvement we study its effects on agricultural practices among Georgia farmers. Our findings show that, first, community involvement had a positive effect on the decision to adopt sustainable agricultural practices, and, secondly, it also had a positive effect on the extent to which farmers adopt these practices. These findings establish an additional dimension to the benefits that would accrue to policies that promote social interaction and civic engagement in rural areas.
Tipo: Journal Article Palavras-chave: Adoption; Associational memberships; Community involvement; Social capital; Sustainable agriculture; Environmental Economics and Policy; Production Economics; Z1; Q16; Q56.
