PEREZ, Mario Alejandro; PENA, Miguel Ricardo  and  ALVAREZ, Paula. Agro-industria cañera y uso del agua: análisis crítico en el contexto de la política de agrocombustibles en Colombia. Ambient. soc. [online]. 2011, vol.14, n.2, pp. 153-178. ISSN 1414-753X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1414-753X2011000200011.

This work shows the relationship amongst economic policies that have promoted the sugar cane sector and its impact on the water resources supply and assimilatory functions in Colombia, with emphasis on the Valle del Cauca. Furthermore, it examines the land support capacity in the Cauca river valley related to the future dynamics of sugar cane crops as a result of the new policies supporting biofuels production.

Keywords : Sugar cane; Carrying capacity; Environmental conflicts and impacts; Valley on Cauca River (Colombia); Strong sustainability.
