Peopling Mountain Environments: Changing Andean Livelihoods in North-West Argentina

Published on 1 January 2003

Structural adjustment and neoliberal policy implementation in Latin America have had dramatic consequences for livelihoods and patterns for natural resource use in mountain regions.

Restructuring of the agricultural economy has increased socio-economic hardship and reduced industrial labour requirements, altering traditional patterns of seasonal migration from these areas.

This paper examines the implications of recent economic and political transformation for Andean livelihoods in the mountains of North-West Argentina.
