PASANOA - Pathways to sustainable land management in Northern Argentina

 

   

 


 

 
 

 

 

During the past 20 years, Argentina has become a major producer and exporter of agricultural products, yet this came at considerable environmental costs. Agricultural expansion and intensification has been particularly rampant in the Chaco, and current land management systems there are not sustainable. Within PASANOA the goal is to find pathways to future land use in the Chaco and provide solutions to landscapes that balance agricultural production, biodiversity conservation and other ecosystem services.

 

Funding and support:

PASANOA receives funding from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (1.10.2015 – 30.09.2018).

Producers’ Survey Training Workshop (WP1)

Location: Salta, Argentina

Date: 24th February 2017

Participants: Matias Mastrangelo (CONNICET/INTA-Mar del Plata), Julia Schünzel (IAMO), Lucas Seghezzo (University of Salta), Jose Volante (INTA-Salta), Andrea Marcela Avalos (INTA-Sachayoj), Sara Cortez, Laura Sacchi (University of Tucuman) and et al.

Description: Planification of the upcoming producers’ survey in the Chaco region. The sampling strategy survey, division of tasks, design of the questionnaire, and budget issues were discussed. Overall, 170 questionnaires are going to be collected across 4 provinces (Salta, Santiago del Estero, Chaco, and Formosa), with the exactly same questions and sampling strategies. Four teams are deployed for this survey, and are coordinated by Matias Mastrangelo and the IAMO team.
