  • 5. Research Objectives Survey and evaluate the decision making of the cooperatives in Maturin Assess their production and compare their statistics to previous statistical data for the region Evaluate sustainability
  • 6. Why Monagas
  • 7. General Hypothesis The current agrarian reform has been more extensive than the previous, 1960s agrarian reform and it has primarily benefited the poorest sector of the rural population. Despite the political influence of large landowners, court rulings and the implementation of the agrarian reform have favored poor farmers over the interests of large landowners. The government has directed significant financial support to the agrarian reform, providing training and equipment to rural peasants. There has been a temporary decrease in overall agricultural production levels as a result of the restructuring of the agrarian sector.
  • 8. Specific Hypothesis The majority of the rural peasants are involved in and support the implementation of the agrarian reform. The majority of lands redistributed to peasants were not expropriated but rather constituted unused state lands; I expect that expropriations have only taken place in cases severe of mismanagement. Agricultural production has not increased in Monagas since the cooperatives are experiencing initial difficulties; potential decreases in production are more likely related to large landowners planting fewer crops and/or withholding sales. The agrarian cooperatives operate with a moderate degree of freedom of action with respect to production decisions. Mission Robinson (the government literacy mission) and Mission Zamora (the government land redistribution mission) are the two most popular government programs, with the greatest success. The reforms have increased political support for President Chavez among the rural population. With the appropriate financial and technical support the agrarian reform can be sustainable.
