Differences in cropping systems and soil organic carbon due to climate change and socioeconomic factors in potato-based cropping systems in the Bolivian highlands


This presentation discusses research performed in Bolivia on climate change in regard to soil degradation. Through interdisciplinary methods in soil science and social science, the researchers attempted to determine why and how much livelihoods have changed in the Bolivian highlands. Specifically, the researchers were interested in the climate and human interface and how this has been affected by reduced rainfall and climate change.
