Los Caminos del Café: Aproximación a la Relación entre el Conflicto Armado Rural y la Producción Cafetera Colombiana

Los caminos del café busca analizar las implicaciones microeconómicas del conflicto armado rural en la decisión productiva de los campesinos cafeteros colombianos. La hipótesis asume que el conflicto armado y la presencia de cultivos ilícitos crean entornos persistentes y sistemáticos de incertidumbre social, política y económica en las regiones cafeteras, lo cual genera ambientes de fragilidad que, sumados a las diferentes crisis de mercado, configuran un escenario desfavorable en el que el pequeño campesino se ve obligado a cambiar sus decisiones de producción. Se propone estimar la función de producción cafetera utilizando OLS y fronteras estocásticas de producción. Este último modelo permite hacer una estimación consistente de la función de producción y una aproximación a la eficiencia productiva de los cafeteros. Se usa una base de datos única con información por finca cafetera para 2006. Losresultados sugieren que existe una relación negativa entre el número de ataques y la producción de café y, en consecuencia, en los municipios con mayor número de ataques la producción es hasta 1,2 por ciento menor que la de otros municipios.
