Adaptation strategies for the Jujuy model forest in NW Argentina

Submitted by Daniel Morchain 20th April 2012 14:39

The Jujuy Model Forest is one of three case study model forests of the EcoAdapt project, which aims to develop and implement ecosystem-based adaptation strategies in Argentinian, Bolivian and Chilean communities. 

Being a highly agroproductive area in which human activity has progressively been causing environmental impacts, it has been necessary to bring together relevant regional actors in order to develop a common understanding that promotes the proper use of natural resources and improves the living conditions of the population.

Current efforts are aimed at consolidating a participatory, sustainable planning and management process of natural resources. These efforts aim at reversing the problems of soil erosion, deforestation, land use planning and overexploitation of natural resources.
