Summary:The basins of the Guanabo and Itabo rivers are located in the northeastern limit of the La Habana province in Cuba. Meanwhile the urban and touristic uses of the territory are very significant in the coastline, the agriculture and the livestock are predominant in the hinterland. Just a few of natural areas remain in this area. Due to the conflict of uses and changing ecological features, the analysis of the environmental degradation of the landscapes is vital in order to establish a sustainable development of the territory. To reach this aim, we have classified the territory in units attending to the main ecological features that form the different landscapes. After that, we have carried out an integrated diagnosis taking into consideration aspects such as the main uses of the landscape units, its potential and efficiency, environmental dangers, degrading processes and geoecological state.
