DEVELOPING TECHNOLOGIES FOR A BETTER FUTURE

THE FUTURE IN OUR HANDS

Argentina has one of the most diverse geographies and captivating variety of landscapes in the world – from jungles to vast plains, from the high Andes peaks in the country’s West to the southern deserts of Patagonia. However, in line with other developing nations, Argentina faces many challenges regarding environmental sustainability, including poor water and air quality, deforestation, and soil degradation. Many agencies, both governmental and non-governmental, work tirelessly producing research and developing public policy to counteract these deprivations. Meet, work with, and see first-hand in action the experts on the frontlines of these endeavors to preserve and cultivate.
