Identification of ecosystems services, associated to Caño Bugre Department of Córdoba Colombia
Resumen en lengua extranjera 1
The ecosystem services are the benefit of the natural resource, in this project the ecosystem services of provisioning, regulation and culture are identified in Caño Bugre located in the department of CórdobaColombia. To do this, some rural diagnostic tools were used, such as (1) surveys of fishermen, (2) workshops with the community, (3) digitization of the satellite image of 2017 and (4) physicochemical analysis of water quality. It was identified that Caño Bugre was previously a very wide, deep and abundant river, which allowed the development of different activities and regulations for the benefit of the inhabitants. However, currently Caño Bugre is perceived by the community as a dry, lost and dirty river. Among the causes of this state is the operation of the dam of Urra (38%), riverside garbage (27%), clogging by sediments at the confluence with the Sinú River (22%), invasion on the river bank (7%) and sedimentation (6%), which shows that Caño Bugre is in risk of losing the offer from the main ecosystems services given to the community, restricting to the regulation of the river’s growing and the receipt of pouring, up to the point of it has lost the level and quality of water, forest cover, fauna, among others, most of the year remains dry and Coliform concentration is higher than 1,000 MPN.
