Strengthening local agriculture
The province of Formosa in northern Argentina is one of the most biodiverse regions of Latin America. While forests are abundant in resources, its people live immersed in scarcity, among other reasons, due to the advance of the agro-industrial frontier.
The project Harvesting Agriculture aims to build a center for water harvesting and agricultural production based on a system for retaining water during periods of summer rainfall for later agricultural use during the dry season in the winter. The construction will be managed by the Lote 8 community in Departamento Matacos itself, as a form of empowerment, reassessing traditional building techniques and enabling knowledge transfer to future generations.
