Where is Paraguay?

Paraguay is a land-locked country in central South America. It borders Brazil to the north east and east. Argentina is to the south and Bolivia to the west. 

Paraguay has a mostly tropical or subtropical climate. The country can be impacted by strong winds. It can also be severely impacted by flooding due to heavy rainfall caused by El Niño. The flooding in 2019 was an El Niño year. Paraguay is considered vulnerable to climate change due to its reliance on agriculture.
