Map of Argentina


Argentina is the eighth largest country in the world with a mainland area that covers more than 2.7 million km2. It has a population of 44 million people out of which 90% live in urban areas. Argentina is considered a middle emerging economy but its economic performance has been unstable and it has been affected by high inflation. This economic situation and an open policy to foreign investments have determined land governance in the country, which has favoured large-scale acquisition and investments with significant consequences for small producers and for the environment.
