A Land use change at the rural urban interface due to population growth and change B Agricultural Adaptation in response to urban pressures at the rural urban interface This research seeks to identify how and under what conditions local communities are able to influence the trajectory of agricultural change and adaptation at the rural-urban interface. More specifically, this research seeks to determine if community policies and/or levels of social capital in the community can shape whether local agriculture thrives, adapts, stagnates, or fades away in the face of urbanization pressures. We have designed the project to evaluate community influences on local agricultural change within the context of other exogenous demographic, economic, and biophysical factors impacting agricultural trends.
