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.

Introduction: Setting the scene

There is momentum in Mexico towards more inclusive, integrated and coherent water policy that goes beyond business as usual. The 2030 Water Agenda adopted in 2011 proposes a strategic vision for Mexico’s water sector, with challenging reforms that require a thorough analysis and diagnosis of both the factors that will foster or hinder implementation and the measures that will likely help to overcome them. The agenda also points out what benefits the factors could bring to the water sector.
