A 9bn-peso (US$52mn) investment in 21 infrastructure projects for public universities will be carried out as part of stage 2 of a US$200mn program that is partially funded by Latin American development bank CAF, the education ministry said in a press release.

The stage entails the construction of 40,000m2 of new buildings and expansions for public institutions in 12 provinces.

Authorities are drafting a bill that would change how water utilities calculate rates by incentivizing lower consumption and disincentivize firms with higher consumption rates per user.

The bill is expected to be submitted to congress during the first half of 2023, the public works ministry (MOP) said in a press release.

It is part of government efforts to improve water efficiency in the face of the decade-long drought afflicting the country.
