SALAR DE UYUNI

Year · 2015 
Tutor · Juan Elvira

Location · Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
Type · Research, infographics, scenarios

Salar de Uyuni is located in the Southern part of Bolivia, at over 3500m a.s.l. and it is considered the world's largest salt flat. Because of its uniqueness, it is also a place rich in natural resources. However, due to the delicate social, environmental and political situation of the area, they are yet not fully exploited. Salt, Quinoa, Lithium and Tourism are the source of conflicts for a long list of agents involved (multinationals, locals, foreign buyers, unions, etc). The exercise consists on the mapping of these resources, in order to understand their full potential and discover new possibilities on how to balance this fragile equilibrium.
