Making Water Reform Happen in Mexico

image of Making Water Reform Happen in Mexico

The report provides evidence-based assessment and policy recommendations in support of Mexico’s water reform. It analyses implementation bottlenecks and identifies good practices in four key areas considered as essential drivers for change in the water sector of Mexico: multi-level and river basin governance; economic efficiency and financial sustainability; and regulatory functions for water supply and sanitation.

This report is the result of a one-year policy dialogue between the OECD and Mexico, after the adoption of the 2030 Water Agenda as a strategic and long-term vision for Mexico’s water sector.

Water is not only the source of life for human beings but it has also always played a central role in the economic, social and environmental development of countries. With the looming challenge of climate change, governments are increasingly recognising the urgency of ensuring the sustainable management of water resources. Successful water policies can set a strong basis for improving the life of all citizens, and the 2030 Water Agenda provides a solid start to this process in Mexico. There is now an opportunity for the new administration to make Mexico a leading example of successful water reform in OECD and Latin American countries.
