In recent decades, deforestation and forest degradation has accelerated dramatically in Argentina, due to the expansion of soybean crops, among other large-scale commercial agricultural activities. The country’s increasing demand for agrofuels is also contributing to its deforestation problem. At the institutional level, Argentina’s forest policy and governance have been ineffective in mitigating these trends.
