At the national and continental level, scholars and policymakers throughout Latin America have developed new strategies designed to improve infrastructure networks, respond to natural disasters, promote biodiversity conservation, establish sustainable land use practices, and improve social and economic equity. Geographers and professionals in related disciplines have played a central role in these efforts. The inherent cross-disciplinary and transnational nature of the challenges facing Latin American nations requires an approach informed by a spatial perspective and implemented using geographic tools and methodologies.
