Mexican national water authority Conagua has signed an MOU with the Finnish environment institute to cooperate in the development of water technology, according to a release.
The agreement provides for the exchange of technology and experience in water efficiency measures and wastewater treatment.
The 10-year agreement focuses on technology exchange in relation to water conservation, flooding management, emergency alert systems, treatment and re-use of wastewater and industrial wastewater, and financial, legal and institutional capacity-building for the water sector.
The agreement will support Conagua in the implementation of its Agenda 2030 program, according to the authority's head José Luis Luege. The program aims to clean up rivers, stabilize water basins, provide universal potable water and drainage coverage and protect cities from catastrophic flooding, all by 2030.
