Water and sustainability

Mamani made these clarifications when participating in the 2021 Water & Sustainability Expo, where he stressed the urgency of incorporating criteria for the conservation of natural infrastructure in the efforts of regional and local governments, to prioritize water and food security for the benefit of the population.

For his part, the director general of Economy and Environmental Financing of the Minam, Luis Marino, addressed the need to strengthen the governance of water resources, incorporating investment in various sectors linked to water services to ensure sustainability, under the concept of ‘nature-based solutions’.
