Programs

Urundei works in the Gran Chaco of South America as a regional area, ranging without limitations from the dry forested lowlands of the great Platte River Basin up to the Yungas, SubAndean Valleys, Puna and Patagonian ecosystems. As a member of IUCN, Urundei seeks to establish links with other regions, including the Amazon and Central America, seeking to integrate visions and collaboration networks among diverse sectors, to strengthen field activities and organizations at the regional level. Urundei convokes the meeting of diverse sectors to generate shared knowledge, as for example, in the development of the Master Plan for Rural Tourism and Ecotourism for the Buffer Zone of El Rey National Park, an initiative led by Urundei at the request of civil society, business, and relevant government agencies. Urundei also offers a space on the web (www.vocesdelchaco & www.urundei.org/exchange) where, by means of videos, concerns over the degradation of natural resources are expressed, sharing personal and collective ideas that can influence open-minded decisionmakers who are looking for solutions.
