Fundación ProYungas is an NGO that works for environmental conservation and sustainable development, promoting territorial planning processes at different scales, actively linking production with the preservation of nature. Created in 1999, it develops its activities in the South American subtropics, mainly in the Norte Grande of Argentina, a region that encompasses the greatest environmental, cultural, and productive diversity of the country.
ProYungas links various actors so that, from their different areas and interests, they are actively involved in the sustainable management of the areas they share. Its purpose is to influence public and private policies related to the sustainable development of areas of high environmental valuation, in a context of social equity. For this, ProYungas relies on the best technical information available, its own or from third parties. In this sense, it works with state agencies, different NGOs, technical and academic institutions, companies and communities.
