    Bolivia

    Local and indigenous communities across the world are advancing innovative sustainable development solutions that work for people and for nature. Few publications or case studies tell the full story of how such initiatives evolve, the breadth of their impacts, or how they change over time. Fewer still have undertaken to tell these stories with community practitioners themselves guiding the narrative. The Equator Initiative aims to fill that gap.

    Citizenship is an abstract concept and therefore great care must be taken in explaining what it means in practice and what can effectively be done in the context of development interventions and policy. Development projects which enhance the ability of marginalised groups to access and influence decision-making bodies are implicitly if not explicitly working with concepts of citizenship. Citizenship is about concrete institutions, policy and structures and the ways in which people can shape them using ideas of rights and participation.

    Argentina

    Los análisis morfométricos realizados en la cuenca del Arroyo Grande indican que la misma tiene forma alargada, oval y oblonga, con pendientes abruptas en las cabeceras y moderadas en la zona de valle y desembocadura, con una superficie de 129,5 km². La vegetación esta compuesta por pastizales, turberas y bosques de Nothofagus pumilio y N. betuloides factibles de ser aprovechados comercialmente. La cuenca presenta una degradación de los ambientes naturales debido al impacto de especies exóticas, el aprovechamiento forestal no planificado y el turismo no regulado.

    La provincia del Chubut posee, en la zona andina, 1.000.000 de hectáreas de bosques nativos, de las cuales 133.000 hectáreas, mayoritariamente conformadas por bosques puros de Nothofagus pumilio "lenga" (90%) se consideran aptas para la producción de madera. De ellas, aproximadamente 10.000 hectáreas han sido o son objeto de algún régimen de aprovechamiento forestal. En 1992 se pusieron en vigencia unas normas específicas que básicamente exigen a quienes pretenden extraer madera del bosque nativo la presentación de planes de manejo forestal.
