SOCIAL ACTIVITY OF THE INHABITANTS OF COMMUNES WHICH IN AGRICULTURAL LAND CONSOLIDATION WORK HAS BEEN IMPLEMENTED. STUDY OF THE LUBELSKIE VOIVODESHIP


Abstract

Agricultural land consolidation affects the development of rural areas. The FAO [2008] classifies land consolidation impacts at three levels: first, there is the microlevel, where land consolidation aims focus on changing the farm structure. Secondly, there is the mesolevel, where land consolidation has broader aims for changing rural communities by improving infrastructure, the natural environment, management of natural resources, landscape and, consequently, the spatial distribution of economic activities. Finally, there is the macrolevel, where the focus is on changes which can positively affect the whole country, by reducing the disparities between rural and urban areas. According to Dacko [2006], the main goal of land consolidation should be to improve the quality of rural life, and not only to increase agricultural production. Land consolidation measures should be initiated to revive the countryside by encouraging continuous economic and political development of the local community, while protecting and rationally managing natural resources. The local community should participate democratically in land consolidation and in defining new forms of land use that make the most of the local potential.

Therefore, the passage of time has brought about changes to the wider perception of consolidation work – not only in the strictly technical and economic aspects but in the social and environmental ones. One of the social benefits resulting from the implementation of consolidation work is the active involvement of the local community in the issues related to the formation of spatial conditions and enhancing the inhabitants’ social activity. In view of the above, the aim of the paper is to investigate the level of social activity of inhabitants in the communes in which agricultural land consolidation has been implemented. The study employed an analysis and synthesis of the literature as well as spatial and statistical research. The area under study included communes of Lubelskie voivodship.
