2018-2019 | Blue Corridor Program 

Coordination of the "Mobilization" component

Programa Corredor Azul, developed by Fundación Humedales - Wetlands International, funded by DOB Ecology.


The FTDT-Delta Alliance Arg. Wing coordinated the "Mobilization" module.

Seven capacity-building workshops were developed for adaptive and participatory planning of deltas, aimed at government officials. The sessions were implemented for: the 9 municipalities of the Delta Bonaerense (with the participation of the Dirección Provincial de Islas, OPDS and INTA), the Municipality of Campana (with the participation of the Administration of National Parks, OPDS and INTA), and the municipality of Victoria (Entre Ríos). Theoretical presentations given by experts in the different topics were included, as well as workshop activities in which scenarios for the area were designed and explored.

2017 | Round Table

Round Table on the Reconquista River Basin

Organized by Delta Alliance Argentinean Wing, Fundación Torcuato Di Tella, Delft University of Technology (TUDelft) and the Reconquista River Basin Committee (COMIREC), established by the Government of the Province of Buenos Aires to apply integrated water management strategies in the Reconquista River Basin.

The Round Table was attended by more than 60 representatives of government institutions and agencies and interested parties. The activity explored the main conflicts in the Reconquista River Basin and discussed alternatives to achieve sustainable and collaborative solutions.

The conclusions of this initiative have been presented to COMIREC as a technical report, to be used as a knowledge base for the elaboration of priorities within the police agenda and to promote the consideration of solutions.

The document will also eventually be used in meetings within the scope of COMIREC, such as those related to the integrated management of urban solid waste, meetings of the universities involved in projects within the area, etc.


2016 | Round Table

Water and Waste Management, Circularity and Urban Strategies & Revitalization.

Organized by the Government of Amsterdam, within the framework of the visit to Argentina and Brazil carried out in 2016 by a group of Dutch experts and the Major of the city of Amsterdam Mr. Eberhard van der Laan in order to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the Head of Government of the city of Buenos Aires, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta. The results put forward by experts from Dutch and Argentine entities in the round tables were used as a basis to establish a field of action between both governments. Delta Alliance Argentinean Wing was present at the Round Table through the participation of Verónica Zagare.
