What is the partnership?

The Latin American Water Funds Partnership

An agreement created in 2011 between the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), FEMSA Foundation, the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the International Climate Initiative (IKI), and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) to contribute to water security in Latin America and the Caribbean through the creation and expansion of Water Funds.

The Partnership supports Water Funds by providing scientific knowledge to achieve and sustain water security through nature-based solutions and the systematization, management, and dissemination of knowledge; capacity-building, and technical monitoring. It also supports the promotion of an inclusive dialogue among relevant stakeholders in the region to boost collective action, the active participation in designing water governance, and the leveraging of resources from public and private sources.
