ASTELARRA, Sofía; DE LA CAL, Victoria  e  DOMINGUEZ, Diego. Conflicts in the Ramsar Sites of Argentina: contributions to the political ecology of wetlands. Letras Verdes [online]. 2017, n.22, pp.228-247. ISSN 1390-6631.

In this paper we aim to present some contributions for a political ecology of wetlands in Argentina. According to the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development of Argentina, 23% of the country's surface is occupied by wetlands. Beyond the number and area they cover, the country's wetlands have great biological and climatic diversity because they are located in different regions. Interest in this type of geographical space grew both within the scientific community and on the global public and political agenda. The international valuation of these ecosystems is based on 1971 when the International Convention on Wetlands, known as the “Ramsar Convention”, was signed. For this, we set the objective of locating and describing social conflicts in the Argentinean wetlands recognized as Ramsar Sites. For this, we consulted secondary sources, tracking those conflicts that have had presence in the local or national media. We after mapped them to finally establish the characteristics of each of the country's wetlands. In the conclusions, we problematize this conflictuality returning some reflections of a general nature.
