Agroecology in the CHACO region

Uploaded on Sep 14, 2009

Muestra un emprendimiento agro ecológico para las actividades productivas dirigidas a establecer nuevos paradigmas sobre la producción ecológica y el manejo ecológico y sustentable del campo, que a su vez genera empleo y bienestar para las familias, con miras a lograr un equilibrio entre las necesidades de producción y el bienestar del medio ambiente.

Some years ago, URUNDEI, a national NGO from Argentina working with peoples of the Chaco region, helped community organizations to produce a series of very short, sweet videos about what the CHACO means to them and why it matters.  An important ecoregion that is often ignored because not as well known or understood as the Amazon or Andes region of Latin America, the CHACO is a place of amazing livelihoods, nature and peoples.

There are a number of Urundei videos in this series.

(And the music is great in all as well)
