Material type: materialTypeLabelBookCall number: IICA-PROCISUR DIALOGO 51 Series: Diálogo - Programa Cooperativo para el Desarrollo Tecnológico Agropecuario del Cono Sur (IICA) no. 51. Publisher: Montevideo (Uruguay): 1998Description: p. 37-45.Summary: This document intends to motivate researchers involved in the design and development of agricultural technologies to apply environmental impact assessment (EIA), procedures as an evaluation tool in all phases of their research projects. The expected outcomes of such an attitude refer to the possibility of ameliorating the very premises of the research in matters of the environment, predisposing the researcher to a pro-active approach for the consideration of eoclogically pertinent issues in the technology development process. There is also consideration about the advantages of offering ecologically friendly arguments in favor of the research proposition itself when appropiate improving for funding. The text explains the reasons for the current relevance deposited worldwide on environmental issues, the prominence of the EIA procedure for the onset of the sustainability paradigm, and the posture expected from researchers involved in EIAs. Finally, it is argued that when the conception of the technology itself, i.e. ex-ante to technology implementation, the likelihood of harvesting negative secondary impacts is lessened, lowering the risks and improving the productivity of research in agricultural technology development.
