Chapter
This chapter deals with wildfires in Paraguay and their environmental and human impacts. Wildfires are a significant threat, both for the loss of forest area and the resulting environmental, recreational and productive services, as well as for damage to public health and property. Wildfires are a cyclical and recurring risk, increasing in intensity...

This study evaluates the ability of 19 models of CMIP phase 6 (CMIP6) to simulate Paraguay’s climate features. Historical multi-member simulations of single models and their multi-model ensembles are bias-corrected and evaluated with statistical metrics. Future projections of precipitation and temperature are generated with the ensembles for three...

During the austral summer 2015/16, severe flooding displaced over 170 000 people on the Paraguay River system in Paraguay, Argentina, and southern Brazil. These floods were driven by repeated heavy rainfall events in the lower Paraguay River basin. Alternating sequences of enhanced moisture inflow from the South American low-level jet and local con...

La iniciativa colaborativa denominada JASMIN por sus siglas en inglés (Joint Assessment of Soil Moisture Indicators) es un esfuerzo mancomunado para avanzar en las estimaciones de humedad del suelo y responder a las necesidades de los usuarios, en particular de los sectores agropecuario e hídrico. JASMIN busca identificar fortalezas, puntos débiles...
Chapter
Hydro-climatic anomalies are impacting the well-being of populations and increasing vector-, rodent-and water-borne diseases (HID) in Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay where extreme ENSO-linked floods have been frequent since 2007. In Paraguay and Uruguay HID have increased over the last decade associated with yearly rainfall variability. The extreme f...

Climate change and ENSO events are increasing hydro-climatic risks and health impacts in Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay, as well as social inequalities in Bolivia and Paraguay. Climate scenarios project increase in average temperature in the whole region, a slight decrease in precipitation and modified rainy patterns in the Andean region and Paragua...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
ENSO‐related climate extremes are a threat to the environment and populations in addition to climate change. Their likely future increase would trigger the current climate adaptation deficit. Thinking of " futures " can be thought as a " what if " learning exercise and a way to develop alternative scenarios which are tools to learn to adapt more th...
Chapter
Full-text available
Successfully improving the capacities and communication on climate adaptation in water resources in Paraguay requires enhanced acceptance and understanding of both climate change and variability adaptation (CCA and CVA respectively). This is firstly to realize that the country has some intrinsic vulnerability being already impacted by climate threa...

Here we show and discuss the results of an assessment of changes in both area-averaged and station-based climate extreme indices over South America (SA) for the 1950–2010 and 1969–2009 periods using high-quality daily maximum and minimum temperature and precipitation series. A weeklong regional workshop in Guayaquil (Ecuador) provided the opportuni...
Article
4-Aryl-2-cyanoimino-3,4-dihydro-1H-pyrimidine derivatives were prepared using a multicomponent reaction by reacting a mixture of arene or heteroarenecarbaldehyde, 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds, and cyanamide under acidic conditions. The novelty of this approach derives from its use of cyanamide as a building block in a four-component Biginelli-type reac...
