Fundar is a non-profit organization that promotes a sustainable and inclusive development agenda for Argentina.

All middle-income countries like ours seek to develop, but what is development? How can Argentina achieve that goal?

At the Foundation for Argentinean Development (Fundar) we seek to contribute to the design and implementation of public policy so our country can achieve a sustainable and inclusive development.

Fundar is not born in a vacuum. A long road that has already been travelled. That is why we seek to amplify existing knowledge, as well as generate original proposals adapted to the Argentine context in strategic areas for national development.

Welcome to Fundar.
