In this paper, we use participatory, multi-criteria decision making to build a sustainability index to assess the sustainability of the farming system in the Argentine Chaco. Our results suggest that almost all 185 farms assessed in the four target provinces have one or more indicators that were below the sustainability threshold. This finding calls for discussions on the reasons for the perceived lack of sustainability and can inform the formulation of better targeted agricultural and environmental policies.
