Project Overview

The Monterrey Metropolitan Water Fund (FAMM) was established by a multi-stakeholder consortium in September 2013. The main objective of FAMM is to preserve the watershed of the San Juan River, which supplies more than 60% of the water used and consumed by the Monterrey population. It also seeks to raise awareness about responsible water use and increase the percentage of government funding invested in the watershed.

Project Results

Collaborative initiatives such as FAMM are often viewed as win-win. In addition to mitigating important water risks for all water users, water resources themselves are kept healthy and flowing for local communities and businesses, and natural systems are protected, safeguarding livelihoods for the local people, habitat for wildlife and freshwater resources.
