Abstract
Biophysical changes caused by climate change occur in a diversity of places producing different socio-economic and institutional effects. This chapter presents a case study in which changes in climate and economics resulted in a new agricultural system based on pivot centre irrigation. This agriculture draws on groundwater in the Río Segundo Basin located in Córdoba province in a semiarid region of the Pampas in Argentina. The aim is to improve understanding of irrigation technology adoption and its social and environmental consequences in the Rio Segundo Basin. This is achieved by connecting the adoption of irrigation technology with environmental and socioeconomic changes using the systems approach. Taking an anthropological approach, cultural values are considered relevant in the adoption of specific forms of adaptation. The case study has been carried out at the local level, applying a qualitative ethnographic research methodology.
