SILVA-SANTAMARIA, Liliana  y  RAMIREZ-HERNANDEZ, Omar. AGROECOSYSTEMS ASSESSMENT BY SUSTAINABILITY INDICATORS IN SAN JOSÉ DE LAS LAJAS, MAYABEQUE PROVINCE, CUBA. Luna Azul [online]. 2017, n.44, pp.120-152. ISSN 1909-2474.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17151/luaz.2017.44.8.

The present research aims to elaborate a set of sustainability indicators for three (3) agroecosystems in the municipality of San José de las Lajas (Cuba). These agroecosystems were selected for its high levels of biodiversity, by they implement agroecological techniques and its easy access and open willingness to participate in this project. About the methodology, principles from Participatory Action Research (PAR) were used, and water and soil samples were analyzed. The construction of indicators was attained based on the Framework for the Evaluation of Natural Resource Management Systems Incorporating Sustainability Indicators (in Spanish, MESMIS) and, overall, 34 indicators were achieved to estimate the agroecosystem sustainability. From the results obtained, it should be emphasized that the three agroecosystems hold relative high levels of sustainability (>0.7), where La Joya's farm shows the highest rate (0.86) as a result of the agro-ecological practices implemented.
