Resumen:
The Pilcomayo river basin raises the three countries that share (Argentina, Bolivia and Paraguay) a huge challenge in various aspects such as social (more than 20 ethnic groups living in the basin), economic (demand is high and is located away of the major economic centers in each country), environmental (in the upper basin mining and oil-gas activities are intense for centuries, in the middle basin the river has a high mobility and sediment transport of the highest in the region and in the lower basin its singular nature of interrupt-stream leads to various wetlands with high biodiversity). A compilation and analysis of major hydraulic problems encountered in the basin are presented in this chapter. These are the high mobility of the channel, the possibility of changing course during floods and high difficulties in the distribution of water and sediment between Argentina and Paraguay.
