This article investigates how migration and remittances affect forest cover in eight rural communities in Guatemala and Chiapas, Mexico. Based on household surveys and remote sensing data, we found little evidence to support the widespread claim that migration takes pressure off forests. In the Chiapas sites, we observed no significant changes in forest cover Author: Arild Angelsen, Mariel Aguilar-Støen, John Herbert Ainembabazi, Edwin Castellanos, Matthew Taylor.

Due to agrarian reform programs begun in the s, over half the agricultural land is held in ejidos, or agrarian communities. AGRICULTURE AND RURAL DEVELOPMENT Seventy- five percent of the world’s poor live in rural areas, and most are involved in farming.
In the 21st century, agriculture remains fundamental to economic growth, poverty alleviation, and environmental sustainability. Chiapas, the southernmost state in Mexico, provides 30% of the country’s fresh water. But poor production practices and deforestation contaminate water and make Chiapas’ communities more vulnerable to extreme weather.
Development of rural areas has witnessed increasing attention globally, especially over the past three to four decades. The highpoint in the renewed global interest in the development of rural people and their environment was reached with the setting of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in the year All of the set goals are basically rural development goals.

Introduction. Trying to achieve conservation and development in rural remote poor areas in developing countries has been one of conservationist's major concerns (Redford et al.,Sunderland et al., ).Among the new alternative strategies to achieve this goal, measures like direct Payments for Environmental Services (PES) have gained support (Chichilnisky and Cited by: This article examines a PES programme in a rural community of Chiapas, Mexico.
It shows that while a majority of the community's landowners have engaged in PES through two distinct working groups, a large share of the community forests remain outside the PES programme, and many landowners resist the extension of PES rules to non‐targeted : Esteve Corbera, Sébastien Costedoat, Driss Ezzine‐de‐Blas, Gert Van Hecken.

Chiapas is the state with the second most marginalized population in Mexico, and small rural localities depend solely on agricultural. Land grabbing has been characterized by large-scale commercial land deals or green grabs of large conservation tracts.
In Chiapas, Mexico, green grabs employ a networked strategy across state, corporate and civil society lines to evict peasant and indigenous communities, and facilitate entry of extractive industries, plantations and industrial ‘ecotourism’.Cited by: In order to evaluate the usefulness of rapid surveys of indigenous knowledge for assessing trends in biodiversity, a case study was undertaken in two rural communities, Juznajab and Muquenal, in Chiapas, Mexico.
This involved the use of a variety of rapid rural appraisal (RRA) and participatory rural appraisal (PRA) techniques, including semi-structured Cited by:
