Configurations socio-spatiales des nouvelles formes de production agricole et ses stratégies de commercialisation. Le cas de Nicaragua, Costa Rica et Panama.

Abstract : Abstract: The research is framed in the field of studies of the socio-spatial reconfigurations produced by transformations in agrifood systems. In this case, agroecological and organic agriculture are presented as new modes of agricultural production that can participate both in the renewal of the food supply, agricultural practices, and the logic of distribution in certain spaces. In this context, our main concern is to understand how the organic agriculture sector is especially organized and inscribed in different study scenarios in Central America, based on the logics and processes defined by its system of actors. For this, the thesis is interested in the social and spatial forms resulting from the dynamics of the sector in three spaces located in Central America: Central Valley (Costa Rica), Metropolitan Region of Managua (Nicaragua) and Tierras Altas -Panama City (Panama). The result of organic agriculture is influenced by the diverse experiences and professional tensions of producers and merchants, by the various representations they have of this way of producing. The thesis shows that the actors are organized in networks, and that these are inherent to the territory, because they do not separate their projects and repertoires of action from the social, environmental, economic and cultural situation of their living spaces. The activation of specific (territorial) resources, built within alternative agricultural networks, guarantees, and participates in territorial action. Using this resource, we explain the socio-spatial peculiarities of the effect of networks in each country.
