PASANOA - Project overview

Workplan of the project


Project goals: Focusing on the part of the Argentine Chaco within the five provinces of Salta, Formosa, Santiago del Estero, and Chaco, PASANOA will

  1. provide new insights into the trade-offs and synergies between agricultural production, ES provisioning and biodiversity

  2. explore drivers of land use decisions and how they vary across land systems

  3. assess how trade-offs between production and conservation land uses may vary across a set of plausible future land-use scenarios

  4. identify optimal landscape patterns that mitigate trade-offs along with guidance on how to implement such landscapes

Workplan overview: PASANOA will consist of six work packages, three led by Argentine and German partners, respectively. To ensure the policy relevance of PASANOA, we will integrate stakeholders throughout the project by making use of the extensive networks of the Argentine partners.
