MARTINEZ LOPEZ, Yonny et al. Communal perception of forestry extension for the conservation of the Toa river basin, Cuba. Cuadernos de Investigación UNED [online]. 2018, vol.10, n.1, pp.166-171. ISSN 1659-4266.

The Toa River basin is one of the main reserves for biodiversity and natural resources in Cuba. We studied the communal opinion about the extension programs designed to mitigate overexploitation currently affecting the basin. Our interviews and surveys found that there farmers and producers know little about forest extension methods, that current land use favors erosion, and that pollution originates in nearby towns and industries.

Keywords : conservation; basin; biodiversity; soil uses; forest practices.
