As with the rest of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), Argentina has experienced an intense process of deforestation and loss of natural vegetation in the last few decades. As the eighth-largest country in the world, with a total mainland area of more than 2.7 million km2 , this not only has significant implications for the region, but globally too. Native forests, such as those in the “Chaco” region in the north of the country, have been particularly affected by this process. The Chaco region is one of the largest seasonally-dry forests in the world, and extends into Bolivia, Paraguay, and a small portion of Brazil. Extracting data from the Land Matrix website using regional filters, this country profile presents a detailed overview of these and other dynamics involved in the acquisition of land in Argentina.
