Argentina is taking advantage of South-South cooperation to enhance growth potential and show successes. With extensive experience in developing innovative projects that improve results, Argentina is promoting strategic partnerships to share knowledge and best practices. The work that it is being done in the areas of environment, health and road safety are good examples to share.
In 2012, an Indian delegation visited Argentina to better understand the current international best practices in estuarine-coastal zone management and improve the application of a newly evolving concept of integrated ecological coastal management.
Environmental specialists from central and provincial government agencies learned about present economic and ecological state of Southern Atlantic Sea zone and all complexity of legal and real-life interaction between the public sector, civil society and private actors in Argentina.
The goal is to preserve this incredibly rich and diverse area considered one of the last most intact marine zones on Earth and at the same time provide sustainable economic growth and development to the local population.
Over this exchange and planned follow-up communications, the participants from India will consider application of ecological management to be used in development, planning and management of coastal and marine areas in India.
