Abstract

La Mojana es una subregión ubicada en la parte norte de Colombia, caracterizada por ser una zona de humedales productivos, perteneciente a la Depresión Momposina, con la función ambiental de regular los cauces de los ríos Magdalena, Cauca y San Jorge, amortiguar las inundaciones y facilitar la decantación y acumulación de sus sedimentos. La dinámica de sus aguas y la biodiversidad de las especies de fauna y flora, que ahí encuentran su hábitat, proveen seguridad alimenticia y generan ingresos a sus pobladores. El objetivo de este estudio es contribuir al conocimiento de los aspectos económicos, ambientales, sociales, e identificar el potencial económico que le permita un desarrollo sostenible. Los resultados del estudio indican que La Mojana tiene limitantes en el uso de sus tierras por los riesgos ambientales y la función natural que desempeña. Su población presenta altos índices de pobreza y alta dependencia de la explotación de los recursos naturales del suelo y el agua. Sin embargo, posee una oferta ambiental que al desarrollarla en forma integral y planificada puede potenciar el desarrollo económico, social y cultural de la región.
