It is a CSV file containing the data of 32 municipalities of Puebla related to the variables used for the Eco-efficiency and climate determinants exercise.


Steps to reproduce

This research analyzes the eco-efficiency of peasant production in Puebla municipalities located in the Tropical Montane Cloud Forests (TMCF) and the influence of climatic factors. Therefore, the data envelopment analysis (DEA) method with bootstrap in two stages was used. The results allow us to draw two basic conclusions. 1) It is possible, imitating best practices, at the aggregate level in the region, to increase annual revenue and preserved areas by 58.7%, with the same inputs; or equivalently, reduce inputs and environmental costs by 36.98% with the same level of production. 2) Climate changes manifested by the increase in temperature and reduction of rainfall resulting from global warming should have predominantly positive impacts on the region's eco-efficiency. Based on this information, strategies can be defined to harmonize economic growth and environmental preservation, as well as adaptive policies and actions to reduce vulnerability and improve the resilience of peasant producers in the face of possible extreme weather events and climate change
