Acknowledgments

This chapter is based on a paper submitted to the Workshop on Climate Change, Carbon Dynamics, and Food Security, Columbus, OH, June 11-12, 2003. We are grateful to the Global Environment Facility, World Bank, Mexican Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries, and Foodstuffs (SAGARPA), and the Oaxaca State government for collaborating in this research.
