Background for the National Strategy
Since launching its activities in Bolivia in 1996, Avina has supported initiatives all over the country, building up leadership and giving visibility to programs promoting sustainable development.
Avina has sought to position itself as a plural, democratic and transparent facilitator that brings together the various sectors, encouraging discussion and consideration leading to social transformation.
Our strategic vision follows clear and precise programmatic lines. Avina opens up opportunities for discussion and coordination leading to the strengthening of democracy, seeking to contribute to building a common vision for the country.
Avina also believes in the capacity of art to bring about change and thus promotes the creation and implementation of cultural agendas that contribute to sustainable development and social change.
Opportunities for advancing elements of Avina's continental strategy in Argentina include initiatives to support recycling, improving public access to water, mitigating climate change, preserving the Amazonian biome and promoting inclusive markets.

Work done by Avina and its allies to ensure the sustainability of the Amazonian biome ecosystem and to protect the quality of life for local populations has resulted in the conservation of 80% of the delicate ecosystem.
For years, Avina has worked in this initiative in different Latin American countries, enabling Uruguayan recyclers to learn best practices in the region and, in turn, to disseminate information on the work carried out in the country. Avina has collaborated with and facilitated the establishment of some cooperatives.
Avina’s commitments and engagements in Nicaragua demonstrate that the mobilization and coordination among different sectors of society can transform the management of Latin American cities, as well as encourage public administration guided by indicators and specific goals to improve the quality of life for all citizens.

Avina played a large role helping allied groups advance their causes in 2006, with more than 50 participatory events that included indigenous peoples, representatives of suburban neighborhoods, members of the UNIR foundation and the Departmental Citizen Forum. These groups came together as the Tenant Federation and successfully influenced the constitutional assembly to include guarantees of fundamental rights, such as the right to adequate
Avina funded these groups and helped to develop strategies, establish contacts and provide access to key players from other nations’ constitutional assemblies.
