Currently, under a newly established Cooperation Accord, 2030 WRG is making outreach efforts to foster strategic alliances with local stakeholders from the private, academic and other civil society organizations, in order to form a multi-stakeholder platform that will support CONAGUA in facing Mexico’s water security challenges.
A pilot water resources ‘gap analysis’ was undertaken to show the benefits of this hydro-economic modelling tool. CONAGUA later expanded the pilot ‘gap analysis’ across the whole of the country’s territory, establishing an important base-line for decision-making.
The current Cooperation Accord between 2030WRG and CONAGUA comprises three main initiatives, including: the development of a capital investment prioritization system, the analysis of the challenges and opportunities for private sector involvement in the water sector and the establishment of a Multi-stakeholder Platform (MSP). These actions will support CONAGUA’s response to mounting national level budgetary constraints resulting from adverse international economic pressures.
The 2030WRG/CONAGUA joint initiative for developing a capital investment prioritization system will also engage in the assessment and prioritization of CONAGUA’s portfolio of investments in some of the most strategic Hydrological Administrative Regions (HARs) and their planning units, in terms of their contribution to GDP, the severity of their water security challenges, and other important socio-economic and environmental criteria. The output will allow CONAGUA and other stakeholders to identify the most strategic and suitable projects for PPPs formation.
The 2030 Water Resources Group (2030 WRG) is a public, private, civil society partnership hosted by the World Bank Group. The partnership supports country-level collaboration designed to unite diverse groups with a common interest in the sustainable management of water resources.
Our global partners include bilateral agencies and governments (Swiss Development Cooperation, Swedish Development Cooperation, the governments of Hungary and Israel), private companies (Nestlé, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Dow Chemical, Ab InBev), development banks (IFC, World Bank, African Development Bank, Inter-American Development Bank), INGOs and IGPs (UNDP, GGGI, GWP, the World Economic Forum, BRAC and IUCN). The 2030 WRG was launched in 2008 at the World Economic Forum and has been hosted by The World Bank Group since 2012.
