Participatory geographic information system for water management

During last decades, effective occupation of territories took place in the north of Argentina, allowing many communities to access land. The formation of Fundapaz institutional Geographic Information System (GIS), together with the consultation, projection and work planning to supply water for human and animal consumption, prompted a natural resource management linked to local development. Changes are based on participatory mapping, with stakeholders designing, collecting and analysing required information in order to articulate effective public policies to guarantee water as a human right.
