    "description": "<p><em>This paper presents a general approach to rainwater as a water resource. The use of</em></p>\n\n<p><em>rainwater, a common practice in many civilizations of the past throughout the planet,</em></p>\n\n<p><em>is regaining prominence in both developed and developing countries. In the latter</em></p>\n\n<p><em>and especially in some rural areas of Asia, Africa and Latin America, rainwater may</em></p>\n\n<p><em>provide more abundant and better-quality water than distant and polluted surface or</em></p>\n\n<p><em>groundwater sources. In developed countries, the use of rainwater diminishes pressures</em></p>\n\n<p><em>on public networks, satisfying certain uses without having to resort to very expensive</em></p>\n\n<p><em>and environmentally problematic infrastructures. However, rainwater suffers from a</em></p>\n\n<p><em>major problem which is the uncertainty of supply, especially in the absence of wellsized</em></p>\n\n<p><em>catchment surfaces and storage tanks for areas of scarce and erratic rainfall. In</em></p>\n\n<p><em>hydrosocial terms, the use of rainwater can empower commuThe objective of this article</em></p>\n\n<p><em>is highlighting the importance of the hydrosocial strategies and practices implemented</em></p>\n\n<p><em>in the 30 missionary towns founded between the XVII and XVIII centuries in the Vice</em></p>\n\n<p><em>Royalty of the Rio de la Plata by the Society of Jesus, a Catholic religious order, among the</em></p>\n\n<p><em>region&rsquo;s Tupi-Guarani indigenous communities. It aims to contribute towards rescuing</em></p>\n\n<p><em>and valuing the historical practices of collection and use of river and rainwater by Jesuit-</em></p>\n\n<p><em>Guarani communities, practices that remain alive in the region&rsquo;s cultural geography</em></p>\n\n<p><em>and social memory. The work is grounded on the analysis and interpretation of cultural</em></p>\n\n<p><em>responses to water-related issues, the historical precedents of such strategies, practices</em></p>\n\n<p><em>and knowledge, and the recognition of their value through historiographical research.</em></p>\n\n<p><em>It seeks to provide elements for the study of hydro-social cultures reflecting on past</em></p>\n\n<p><em>processes and the production of knowledges associated to water cultures in the Guarani</em></p>\n\n<p><em>region of South America.</em></p>",
