PEREVOCHTCHIKOVA, Maria; HERNANDEZ FLORES, José Álvaro  and  AVILA-FOUCAT, Veronique Sophie. Natural Resources and Productive Diversification in Four Rural Locations in Oaxaca, Mexico. Cuad. Desarro. Rural [online]. 2018, vol.15, n.81, pp.1-25. ISSN 0122-1450.

This work analyzes the relationship between productive diversification –including ecotourism– and the use and importance of natural resources in four rural locations in Oaxaca, Mexico. To do so, the findings from a survey applied to 209 households in 2014 were used and 16 significant variables were selected thereof. The study stages consist in the description of the socioeconomic and environmental characteristics of the examined locations, and the diversification analysis. It is confirmed that, under similar conditions, both sustainable diversification and exploitation of the natural resources become crucial practices in the life strategies of the involved households.

Keywords : natural resources; productive diversification; ecotourism; Oaxaca; Mexico.
