Mexico Water Commission Seeks Funding For Monitoring Quantity And Quality


A lack of resources, growing insecurity and the difficulty of accessing some parts of the country are preventing the National Water Commission (Conagua) from carrying out the measurements required to determine the quality of Mexico’s water and the quantity available. In a December 2019 document submitted to the Secretariat of Finance, Conagua outlined the problems it faces and requested just over 10.3 billion pesos in financing (US $548.6 million) to expand and upgrade the National Water Measurement Network.
