Rosa Fernanda Gutiérrez Alcívar, César Litardo Caicedo, Betty Beatriz González Osorio, Byron Wladimir Oviedo Bayas

Abstract

Information was gathered in Recinto Cuatro Mangas, Canton Buena Fe, Province of Los Ríos, Ecuador, with the purpose of decreeing the type of accessibility to natural resources that will sustainably allow local development over time by the community. For this purpose, development plans for territorial planning were promoted, including the current institutional framework, strategies and mechanisms that help the environment and local improvement. To achieve the research objective, a total of 100 people were surveyed, including producers and consumers. The most popular products were bananas (40%), and cocoa (30%), followed by ginger, bananas and oranges (11%, 10% and 9%, respectively). It was determined that the products available in the area of Cuatro Mangas are still relatively low in quantity, quality and variety. Therefore, it is proposed to solve this problem in the following way: on the one hand, prioritize the products according to demand, and incorporate new crops adapted with irrigation technologies.
