Buenos Aires

The Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area (AMBA) is home to 12.8 million inhabitants (2010) and covers 2,500 km2, stretching along the Rio de la Plata, an immense river with a flowrate of 23,000 m3/s. The city also extends across a plain endowed with a large groundwater supply. AMBA encompasses the City of Buenos Aires and 24 surrounding municipalities within the Province of Buenos Aires. A main challenge for its water and land management is the lack of a metropolitan authority.
