Abstract

“Cuando se empieza una lucha, uno cree saber cuál es la niela final pero, a medida que la lucha avanza y se intensifica, uno se va dundo cuenta de que la meta no era el final sino más bien el verdadero principio, y que el logro de la meta, al erradicar un mal forzosamente también ocasiona problemas.”

Abstract

Este libro está basado en un estudio antropológico y una labor de asistencia social en la ciudad nicaraguënse de Matagalpa. Durante cinco años la autora visitó regularmente a familias en las que uno o más familiares han desarrollado un trastorno psicótico en la pubertad. Aquí se narran las conmovedoras historias de cuatro de estas familias. Tratan de pobreza, violencia y la búsqueda en vano de una cura. El título Mejor dejarlo tranquilo hace referencia a una estrategia de supervivencia que los familiares, después de años de lucha, se han visto obligados a adoptar para poder pasar los días de la forma más llevadera posible.Además de los familiares, también hablan los asistentes de salud y otras personas del entorno. Así el lector se puede hacer una idea de la ayuda de que disponen los pacientes psicóticos y lo que la sociedad piensa de ellos. Finalmente describe la autora como, junto con las familias, se llega a constituir una organización para hacer frente a la psicosis y a los problemas que esta conlleva. La publicación de este libro tiene como objetivo dar a estudiantes, profesionales y legisladores una visión de la problemática que hay en Nicaragua relacionada con la psicosis. El libro es, además, un alegato a favor de la atención psiquiátrica en el hogar y el involucrar a los familiares en el tratamiento de los pacientes psicóticos.

Abstract

Aux yeux du monde, le Nicaragua échappe rarement à son image de petit pays pauvre de l'isthme centraméricain, destiné à ne faire la « Une » des journaux qu'en cas de révolution ou de catastrophe naturelle, comme l'a montré le passage du cyclone Mitch en octobre 1998. Pourtant, son histoire héroïque et tragique, mais aussi la force et la richesse de ses courants littéraires, font que l'ancienne « terre des lacs et des volcans » occupe une place à part dans l'imaginaire des Européens. C'est po...

Abstract

The role of soils for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals is multifarious. Soils are the essential basis for food and biomass provision in support of food security (SDG 2) and energy security (SDG 7). Soil carbon sequestration is paramount for climate action (SDG 13). Soil-mediated water purification and retention, nutrient and matter cycling, and soils habitat functions are essential for maintaining ecosystem services and biodiversity (SDG 15). Healthy soils perform well in all these functions simultaneously. However, the globally increasing demand for food, fiber, and bio-based products poses massive challenges to soil health. Minimizing trade-offs between biomass production and soil health requires systemic approaches to assessment and governance of sustainable soil management in agriculture and food systems. It provides interdisciplinary insights into key questions: What are the impacts of agricultural management practices on sustainability targets in specific geophysical and socio-economic contexts? What are the opportunities and risks of future trends such as climate change, digitalization, and emerging technologies for soil management and soil health? How can institutions and governance instruments be improved to enable decision makers to take action on sustainable soil management? The book was initiated in the frame of the National German research program ‘BonaRes—Soil as a sustainable resource for the bioeconomy’, and it is meant to trigger interdisciplinary thinking.
