Agua por la vida y la sostenibilidad

Project Overview

Cauca Valley is Colombia’s largest sugarcane producing region. Irrigation demands, combined with the needs of a growing population, of around 1.2 million living in five cities, have led to increased water scarcity in the region. As in many other Andean regions, use of the upper watersheds for cattle grazing and small plot farming has led to altered water supplies, increased erosion and landslides, diminishing water quality and new challenges for irrigation.


Beneficiaries / Outcomes

The population and sectors served include: 1.2 million residents in five cities, sugar cane growers association, sugar mill industry association, conservation organizations, municipal water organizations and the hydropower sector.
