Gran Chaco:
Building Resilience in the Gran Chaco (Argentina, Bolivia and Paraguay)

The Gran Chaco is the second largest forest region in Latin America after the Amazon and is shared between Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia and a small area in Brazil. Studies of the Gran Chaco’s vulnerability to climate change forecast significant impacts in the next three decades, particularly increased risk of droughts and floods in different areas and a rise in extreme weather events. This climate variability is already affecting production systems, making the creation of new skills, tools, knowledge, and production and marketing models that enable producers in Gran Chaco to protect themselves and their environment from the effects of climate change an urgent concern.

KNOWLEDGE

A key component of the Proadapt program is to share and transfer knowledge and innovation generated through its projects and country and sector studies, so that experience, data, and lessons learned can be applied throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, and even outside of the region.
