Sustainable Management of the Water Resources of the La Plata Basin with Respect to the Effects of Climate Variability and Change

The general objective of the project is to strengthen the efforts of the governments of Argentina, Bolivia, Brasil, Paraguay and Uruguay to implement their shared vision for the environmentally and socially sustainable economic development of the la Plata Basin, specifically in the areas of the protection and integrated management of its water resources and adaptation to climatic change and variability. Co-ordinated and locally executed by the CIC, the project, which represents the first phase of a possibly multi-phase effort, will harmonise and prepare, in co-operation with the Basin countries, a programme of strategic actions for the sustainable management of the la Plata Basin. The project will also represent a mechanism to coordinate and integrate the ongoing GEF supported efforts in portions of the absin (Bermejo, Pantanal, Plata Estuary, Guarani), enhancing replicability and sustainability of single succesful outcomes.
