Ecological-Economic Zoning of the Parnaíba Delta – Urban-Regional Dimension | 2017
This publication presents the results of the survey carried out in 2000, in collaboration with the Ministry of the Environment, aiming at contributing to the enhancement of the survey methodology in the urban-regional approach for Ecological-Economic Zonings. The intermediation of the cities in the regional environmental context represents the very heart of the analysis in the Parnaíba Delta. The developed methodology and the results applied are the basis for the debate on the role of the cities as means of territory transformation and, as a result, of impact on nature. The survey is disclosed timely: firstly, because of the discussion on the role the cities play in the environmental issue; and, secondly, because of the transformation of Brazil into a eminently urban country, as seen in the 2000 Census.
