Abstract

Atualmente, a preservação dos recursos naturais tornou-se uma preocupação mundial, com isso vem se percebendo o aumento do número de pesquisas buscando verificar as principais causas da degradação do meio ambiente, como também a busca de alternativas que venham a solucionar ou amenizar os problemas causados pela degradação. Esta pesquisa teve como objetivo identificar os fatores sociais, ambientais e econômicos que potencializam a degradação ambiental nos agropolos do estado do Ceará. A área estudada abrange os 18 agropolos do Estado do Ceará. Os indicadores foram definidos segundo a literatura e obtidos a partir de dados secundários fornecidos pelo Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatística (IBGE) e pelo Instituto de Pesquisa e Estratégia Econômica do Ceará (IPECE). Os resultados da pesquisa mostram que as principais causas de degradação ambiental no Estado do Ceará são ocasionadas pelo baixo Produto Interno Bruto per capita a preço de mercado, alta Taxa de Esgotamento Sanitário e alta percentagem da área colhida com culturas de subsistência, sendo que todos esses fatores estão diretamente relacionados com as condições precárias de vida de grande parte da população do estado. Os resultados apresentados poderão auxiliar os planejadores de políticas na elaboração de programas de combate à degradação específicos para as necessidades de cada agropolo o que tornará tais programas mais efetivos.----------------------------------------------Currently, the preservation of natural resources has become a global concern, it has been noticing the increase in the number of searches looking for verifying the main causes of degradation of the environment, as well as the search for alternatives that will solve or alleviate the problems caused by the degradation.
