Background for the National Strategy
With the support of multiple allies, Avina has advanced processes for monitoring and promoting social change in Nicaragua, from an equitable, inclusive and sustainable perspective.
Avina’s experience designing and implementing proposals for agendas that promote sustainable development, both at local and continental levels, guide our Nicaraguan initiatives.
The challenge is to continue innovating and pursuing new avenues for social change with the participation of all relevant stakeholders.
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.

Access to Water
Through initial investments, Avina has identified community solutions that are producing tangible, sustainable and scalable results to increase access to water.
South American Chaco
Over the past decade, Avina has supported the formation of international networks in the South American Chaco and collaborated with these new partners to advance the cause of sustainable development and environmental protection. Avina and its allies have identified and supported productive solutions that are not only sustainable, but that also demonstrate the viability of preserving the environment while producing economic value in the region.
To ensure migrations are a source of prosperity and integration for Latin America, link the collaborative work between different sectors of society at the local and global levels, and channel efforts towards a regulatory, institutional and ethical framework of dignified, formal, democratic and sustainable human mobility.

Establishment of the Nicaraguan Recycling Entrepreneurs’ Network
Since 2009 Avina has provided support to various recycling initiatives that have been instrumental in establishing the Nicaraguan Recycling Entrepreneurs’ Network (Red de Emprendedores Nicaragüenses del Reciclaje – RED NICA), an association of collectors of recyclable materials. At the end of 2010, RED NICA included more than 1,500 recyclers from four of the country’s departments.
Avina has been a leader in contributing to key actions for the development of inclusive business. Tangible support includes technical assistance for establishing and strengthening RED NICA, as well co-funding the First National Recycling Forum and the first and second national meetings of RED NICA.
