Particularidades geográficas para sostenibilidad rural

La investigadora de Tudistar Elena De Uña Álvarez, junto a dos investigadores más, ha publicado el artículo: «Landform values for rural sustainability: Recognition and assessment in a Spanish–Portuguese border region case study». En el artículo exploran cómo los valores geográficos y las particularidades del relieve pueden ser usados a favor de la sostenibilidad rural, estudiando el caso de la Sierra de Larouco (Galicia).

Resumen del artículo: 

Landform assemblages may be used to define sites of geomorphological interest which are resources for rural sustainability. This paper focuses on the valuation and significance of such sites in the context of one European internal border region, illustrated using a case study from the inland mountains of the Spanish-Portuguese border: the Serra do Larouco. The theoretical and methodological approach used includes the recognition, inventory and assessment of a preliminary list of twenty-eight sites. They comprise diverse granitic landforms which characterise the rural inland landscapes in the North West of the Iberian Peninsula. The results from the qualitative and quantitative assessments were the basis for a final selection of nine sites as significant land resources. An analysis of their key values supports the proposal of different use and management options to promote rural sustainability. A review of the methodology applied and the consideration of other case studies provide a means to interpret and discuss the regional and local significance of the selected sites. The conclusions emphasise the crucial role that values linked to landforms can play in little-known mountainous and rural border regions, suggesting a future research agenda.
