Cadernos de Geografia <p>The journal <em>Cadernos de Geografia</em> is published by the Department of Geography, Faculty of Arts and Humanities, University of Coimbra.This journal was created in 1983 and is the outcome of what had been planned for some time, for a journal that can cover all the topics that geography encompasses.The first issue was dedicated to Professor Alfredo Fernandes Martins, a distinguished Geographer from Coimbra’s Geography group, who also dreamed of the Institute launching a publication. Works of great historical interest and geographical interest by this author were published in that issue.The <em>Cadernos de Geografia</em> has been published in three series, which are easily distinguished by their appearance. The second series also has four special issues, the first is a tribute to Professor J. M. Pereira de Oliveira while the others contain the works that were presented at the first three <em>Colóquios de Geografia de Coimbra</em>, since the communications from the subsequent issues were included in the issue of the relevant year.</p> Imprensa da Universidade de Coimbra en-US Cadernos de Geografia 0871-1623 <p>Authors retain copyright and grant the journal right of first publication with the work simultaneously licensed under a&nbsp;<a href="" target="_new">Creative Commons Attribution License</a>&nbsp;that allows sharing the work with recognition of authorship and initial publication in Antropologia Portuguesa journal.</p> Cartography, tourism and propaganda: the ROTEP map of Entre Douro e Minho, 1959. <p>Traveling has been linked to the use of maps and, if at an early stage people used general maps since tourism became more popular, a new specific type of map emerged: tourist maps. More than the cartographic / geographical representation of space, these maps, due to their iconographic and pictorial characteristics, constitute a form of construction and promotion of territorial identities. In this sense, they are objects of the propagandistic discourse conveyed by the authorities as can be seen in the analysis of the map of Entre Douro e Minho edited by Rotep. .</p> Luís Miguel Moreira ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2019-12-28 2019-12-28 40 101 117 Landscape, tourism and wine in the Douro in Portugal: an imposing tradition <p>The landscapes are formed from the relation man and nat ure, being a way of re cognizing the construction of space through the multiple spatial processes. The landscapes can be of various types, among them are the winegrowing landscapes that gain, more and more, stand out worldwide due to the importance and expansion of viticulture. The production of wines creates unique landscapes and provides the implementation of wine tourism. In the Douro, Portuguese region, the landscape is the result of the materialization of wine, environmental forms and culture. This landscape becomes a cultural heritage and also an element of tourism. In this way, the present study sought to discuss the landscape, the local potentialities and the obstacles of wine tourism. For this, the bibliographical research, based on the analysis of works that deal with the reality of the Douro, was used in addition to a visit to the Douro area, in order to analyze the landscape. The aim of this work is to contribute to the studies on wine production in the Douro, bringing a new perspective on the landscape and regional tourism.</p> Vanessa Manfio ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2019-12-28 2019-12-28 40 79 90 Database for mass movement risk management in Coimbra and analysis of the influence of the main atmospheric conditions <p>Slope instabilitie is present in mountainous regions, and disorderly growth in urban susceptible areas, coupled with lack of land use planning, has increased the occurrence of these types of disasters in urban areas. The climatic study is necessary for the monitoring and prevention of mass movements, since they are triggered by events of extreme and / or long duration precipitation. A database is an important tool in the contribution of these studies and in risk management.</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> Lúcio José Sobral da Cunha Geórgia Jorge Pellegrina ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2019-12-28 2019-12-28 40 7 22 Soil degradation in Central Rif mountains area in northern Morocco: aspects of losses and failure of development programs <p>In the Rif region in northern Morocco, the degradation of the environment exposes the soil to aggressive erosion agents, especially in the Mediterranean climate in which the evacuation of 2000 tons of soil per km<sup>2</sup> per year is a basic average. In these difficult environments is necessary to manage the resource effectively by anticipation the situations of dry and wet years. Several development programs have been carried out in the Rif zone since 1960s and the problem persists, especially with the arrival of the new agriculture of Cannabis (Drug) in 1995 in the southern part of the study area which is characterized by its precarious environmental balance. This paper aims to examine the aspects of soil degradation and analyse the failure factors of the management programs and projects have been conducted by several national and international stakeholders including EU and UN.</p> Hanifa El Motaki Abdelhak El-Fengour Aissa El Bouzidi ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2019-12-28 2019-12-28 40 53 66 Tourism - Sustainable production and consumption <p>Making tourism sustainable involves raising awareness and mobilizing the public sector decision-makers, several organizations and businesses and the general public to work together, aligning with environmental, social and economic policies with rationality and ethics, leading to a better behaviour and practices of the tourist consumers, like a demand of social and political responsibility of our days. This article as a reflective approach on tourism activity, aims to promote correlations of thought that can contribute to the discussion of sustainability in production and consumption in tourism destinations. Methodologically we resort to direct observation, by connecting events, facts and concepts, with a research determined by a of critical realism, finding that the trajectories of economic growth and consumption are similar in tourism activities, generating negative impacts and unsustainability, signalling the need of a reflection on the sustainability indicators for changes in the way it is produced and consumed in the tourist phenomenon, like as strong inducers in the reputation and attractiveness of tourism destinations, for all already developed or consolidated, as well as for those in the exploration or involvement stage, in their tourist life cycle.</p> Vitor Manuel Pereira ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2019-12-28 2019-12-28 40 91 100
