Analysis and Conclusion
Link to the decision
Jesuit Missions of Guaranis (Argentina/Brazil)
The Missions of Guaranis are nowadays used for tourist purposes and research. They are located in an aggressive natural environment. The successful restoration of the Missions on Brazilian territory was almost completed. Regarding the Argentina missions, restoration activities have focused on one mission, San Ignacio Mini. A more global approach was recommended as well as increased subregional cooperation. The Brazilian Delegation informed -the Committee that steps towards such cooperation were already being taken by the countries of MERCOSUR (Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay).
