Prioritizing Water Investments in Mexico

Mexico Roundtable Discussions

Mexico City, October 2015 — Two workshops were recently held in Mexico on the prioritization of investments for CONAGUA, the National Water Commission. The workshops have been organized by CONAGUA, 2030 WRG and consultants Amec Foster Wheeler and Castalia.

The 2030WRG/CONAGUA joint initiative for developing a capital investment prioritization system will engage in the assessment and prioritization of CONAGUA’s portfolio of investments in some of the most strategic Hydrological Administrative Regions (and their planning units) of the country 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 (i.e. the private sector) to identify the most strategic  projects for financing.
