Women’s Strategies in Riparian Communities in Sonora, Mexico

April 24, 2014

3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Women’s Strategies in Riparian Communities in Sonora, Mexico in the Face of Increasing Precarization of Farming and Food Processing Livelihoods due to Climate-Water Challenges


Presented by: UIC Latino Cultural Center and Latin American and Latino Studies Program

Join us for a conversation with Stephanie Buechler as she explores the adaptive mechanisms of women in their agriculture-based activities in the context of climate change and water scarcity. The women studied in these  riparian landscapes offer critical livelihood sustenance and ecosystem services, as their activities include cheese-making in Rayon, Sonora, and candied and canned fruit and vegetable production in San Ignacio, Sonora.

Stephanie Buechler is an Assistant Research Professor of Environmental Policy, School of Geography and Development and Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy, University of Arizona. Her research focuses on gender, inequality, water, climate change, urban, peri-urban and rural agricultural production and processing, migration, livelihoods, development, innovation and adaptive strategies to urban heat islands.

This event is part of the Latin American and Latino Studies Program’s “Precarity Lecture Series: Environment” and co-sponsored by the UIC Institute for the Humanities.

If you require any accommodations please contact us at least three days before the event.
