Abstract


This work developed in Brazilian and Peruvian floodplains (várzea) in order to propose agro technological models to increase the resilience of open and complex systems, as flooded environments of the Amazon River in front of extreme climate events, such as the severe flooding of recent decades. The results showed favorable scenarios to increase resilience in pilot environments studied from introduction of high hydroponic gardens, aquaculture and modernization of handcraft activity, in both countries, allowing riparian communities, farmers, fishers and artisans increase its activities over the full period and defeso scenarios, culminating with productive inclusion of these traditional communities in situations of extreme climate events.
