Agua Tica es el primer fondo de agua de Costa Rica, contribuye a la protecci—n de las fuentes del recurso h’drico ubicadas en las subcuencas del r’o Grande y r’o Virilla. En esta valiosa alianza colaborativa participa la sociedad civil, instituciones pœblicas y la empresa privada. Nuestro objetivo es asegurar el recurso h’drico en cantidad y en calidad para el ‡rea de influencia de la iniciativa, las personas y actividades que ah’ se desarrollan. El problema: El Gran çrea Metropolitana enfrenta una gran presi—n sobre el recurso h’drico y sus fuentes, debido al alto crecimiento poblacional, la escasez de ordenamiento territorial y el cambio de uso del suelo. Las subcuencas sufren los crecientes efectos nocivos de esta realidad, lo que obliga a tomar acciones que aseguren el recurso h’drico en cantidad y calidad. La soluci—n: La iniciativa parte de la ciencia para sumar esfuerzos, sustentar y priorizar proyectos entre los actores pœblicos y privados, procurando la eficiencia en la inversi—n de los recursos para la protecci—n y conservaci—n del agua.
