Project Description: 

CLIVAR/VAMOS and GEWEX/GHP identified the Rio La Plata Basin as a climate-hydrology system with components that are potentially predictable with useful skill from seasons in advance, and whose variability has important impacts on human activities.

LPB provides a framework for integration of regional projects leading to improved predictions of the climate and hydrology system, and the coordination of those projects at the highest international level (WMO/WCRP).

LPB can act as an advocacy group to agencies that provide funding for science projects and the strengthening of the scientific infrastructure.

LPB aims to enhance the scientific infrastructure in the Plata Basin in agreement with producers and users of climate information.
