This book provides insight into the hydrology, ecosystem services and management of water resources in the Paran River basin, including the importance of water to the socio-economic development of the countries within the watershed.

Running through Brazil. Paraguay and Argentina, the Paran River and its watershed is home to some of South America's major population centers as well as important ecosystems threatened by development. At the same time, the river is also a major resource driving the economies of the nations within its boundaries. This volume examines the impacts of environmental degradation, and the tradeoffs between the energy sector and the maintenance of ecosystem services. In particular, it focuses on the threats from development to sensitive ecosystems within the basin and the challenges of transboundary management of water resources. In addition to presenting wider perspectives on water management, the volume specifically covers water infrastructure, aquatic ecosystems, water quality, geomorphological Influences and the impact of climate change. Finally, by assessing each country's current status in meeting the Sustainable Development Goals this volume provides a timely analysis as national governments within the basin are becoming increasingly concerned about the sustainability of the freshwater ecosystems within the Paran River basin.

This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of water and natural resource management, environmental policy, sustainable development and Latin American studies. It will also be relevant to water management professionals.
