OLMOS-MARTINEZ, Elizabeth; GONZALEZ-AVILA, María Eugenia  y  CONTRERAS-LOERA, Marcela Rebeca. Perception of the population about climate change inprotected natural areas of ‘Baja California Sur’, Mexico. Polis [online]. 2013, vol.12, n.35, pp.459-481. ISSN 0718-6568.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-65682013000200020.

This work shows the perception of the human population settled in the seven federal natural protected areas of ‘Baja California Sur’, from the point of view of empirical knowledge about changes in the environment and natural resources in front of the effects of climate change (CC). Data was collected from the application of 250 qualitative surveys in 2011. The results show that most of the people know the meaning of CC and that the effects they perceive are reduction of forest surface by changes of land use, reduction of fishing activity by changes in sea conditions, negative effects on the cattle herds and frequency and intensity of hurricanes, increased droughts, lack of water and reduction of ecotourism by changesin the beaches. Studies have shown that subjective valuation of the population contributes to behavioral change through a strategy of adaptation and of citizen awareness.

Palabras clave : perception; human population; climate change; natural protected area.
