Argentina Wing

The Delta Alliance Argentinean Wing (DAAW) aims to generate a robust platform for interaction among institutions within the Paraná Delta to develop knowledge and actions towards an increase of the resilience capacity of the area, as well as an improvement of its governance at all levels. The Wing is coordinated by Verónica Zagare (TU Delft). DAAW is formed by Fundación Torcuato Di Tella, Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria (INTA), Fundación para la Conservación y el Uso Sustentable de los Humedales / Wetlands International, Instituto de Investigaciones e Ingeniería Ambiental -3iA-, Instituto Superior de Urbanismo, Territorio y Ambiente -ISU- and Centro de Investigaciones de Políticas Urbanas y de Vivienda -CIPUV-.

Paraná Delta

The Delta of the Paraná River is one of the largest coastal wetlands systems of Argentina, spreading over 320 km, comprising a vast extension of more than 22.587 km2. The Delta presents a variable width, from 18 km up to 100 km. According to landscape parameters and hydrologic regimes it presents different landscape units distributed in three zones: Upper, Middle and Lower Delta.
The Delta is rich in biodiversity and natural resources and faces the pressures of urban growth, unsustainable agricultural practices and the consequences of climate change. It is a natural capital which represents a valuable benefit for the human population due to the ecosystem's goods and services.
