Our Role

The 2030 WRG entered into an agreement of cooperation with the Consejo Consultivo del Agua A.C. (CCC) in 2015 and became a full CCA member that same year, a process that benefited from the support of Nestlé-Mexico. This situation conveyed the 2030 WRG with all the rights and responsibilities of a CCA Member. The 2030 WRG then initiated a dialogue process with other CCA members to identify a set of policy priorities that could be addressed by thematic committees and by launching specific initiatives. As the dialogue continued, the task ahead was to support the establishment of thematic committees by identifying key figures within the CCA who are outstanding experts and professionals that could lead each of them. Each of the leaders then invited other CCA members, as well as other special external invitees, to participate in the committees to start open and inclusive policy dialogue, help draft the initiatives’ concept notes, and support the implementation of initiatives through collective action. The 2030 WRG plays the role of technical secretariat for each of the thematic committees, assisting the thematic leader in their responsibilities, providing high-level technical advice, and providing also some logistical support.
