The Bermejo River flows beyond its banks


, : The Bermejo River flows beyond its banks. Global Issues 4(1): 29-31

This article examines the effectiveness of the environmental management approach used by Argentina and Bolivia as a means to a better life for the many impoverished people who live in this area. The approach aims to integrate environmental and development concerns in a plan for the future of the region. With financial support from international agencies, Argentina and Bolivia are conducting a wide-ranging study of a border-spanning watershed that spreads over 190,000 sq. km. The two countries want to learn how to make better decisions about development. These decisions are aimed to preserve the environment and improve economic opportunity for the 1.2 million people of the region. The study conducted will explore ecotourism as a strategy for forest preservation and increased economic opportunity. The two countries have been working together with the Organizations of American States for nearly 20 years. This collaboration is an attempt to improve the condition of the watershed. Efforts to find answers in the Bermejo River basin are motivated by an integrated form of environmental science, the economic hardships of the people of the region, and a new economic dynamism inspired by Mercosur, the Mercado Comun del Sur or Common Market of the South. The Mercosur agreement also places a special emphasis on social justice, efficient use of available resources, and preservation of the environment. The reliable and well-managed water resources are critical to industrialization, and the improvement in the way of life of the people in the Bermejo watershed region.
