Greening the Argentine State? Forest Policy and the Protection of Native Forests in the Argentinean Gran Chaco
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Government.

Abstract [en]

Regardless of increasing academic attention to environmental issues, we still know little about the characteristics of environmental transformations of the state in the developing world. The present paper contributes to filling this gap of knowledge by investigating recent environmental policy advancements in Argentina. More specifically, it examines current national and provincial policymaking aimed at reducing ongoing deforestation and degradation of the country’s native forests in the regions of the Argentine Gran Chaco, a region that is currently affected by large-scale deforestation. The empirical analysis focuses on relevant institutional and power constellations throughout the policy process and pays attention to the interplay of state actors and institutions involved in forest policymaking at different levels of political organization. The paper offers valuable insights into the conditions affecting state environmental action in developing settings, and improves our understanding of the institutional, political and social challenges to the protection of natural resources in such contexts.
