Abstract

This study shows, as it contributes to local sustainable development (LSD) of agricultural production systems in Nicaragua during the periods 1998-2001 to 2005. The articles is organized in the first section with a literature review on the methodology of DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis), the systems approach and the theory of local sustainable development, the second section discusses the type of data used, the third section explains the methodology used, the fourth section is dedicated to the results and the last section presents the conclusions. The study used the methodology of DEA, with the Malmquist index to calculate the change in total factor productivity (TFP) during the period studied, this index is built into the econometric model design sustainable local development (MDLS) to measure the contribution to the LSD. The research results show that the forestry subsystem and backyard production shows an increasing trend in the rate of TFP. The variables used in the model explained less than 50 % contribution to the DLS , given its level of significance and level of contribution. These variables are the social and productive and subsystems that outlook forestry and backyard production.
