The southwest of the Buenos Aires Province is a cattle rearing zone. The soils in Argentina’s semi-arid Pampa regions are especially vulnerable to increasing climate variability and change. Over the last century, Argentina has experienced significant agricultural intensification without much attention being given to environmental sustainability and the conservation of agroecosystems, natural resilience and adaptive capacity of the agricultural systems, which have therefore suffered significant damage and loss of their natural climate resilience.

The project objective is to contribute to reduce climate and human induced vulnerability of the agroecosystems in the Southwest of the Buenos Aires Province by increasing adaptive capacity of key local institutions and actors, and piloting climate resilient and sustainable land management practices. Participatory planning processes will be used to identify and pilot concrete adaptation measures focusing on water, crops and livestock management to promote climate resilience.
