Governor Marina del Pilar highlights progress on water projects in Baja California

The state governor pointed out that investments in hydric infrastructure and urban mobility that supports the transition to a sustainable economy are a priority

In order to contribute to guarantee potable water services to the population at large and increase the surface of irrigation, the governor of Baja California, Marina del Pilar Ávila Olmeda, highlighted that the projects financed by the Green Bond are moving forward with support from the Executive Committee of the North American Development Bank (NADBank).

The state governor highlighted the analysis and approval of several internal policies to continue optimizing operations of a strategic 5-year plan to guarantee water for all homes.

"This plan's goal is to support the development of the border region by increasing its number of environmental infrastructure projects with an impact and its development asset portfolio for five years," she said.

Priorities are hydric infrastructure and greener urban mobility that supports the transition to a sustainable economy, make progress on the wellbeing of inhabitants, and preserve, protect, and improve the environment of the US-Mexico border region.

During the committee’s most recent meeting, the Secretary of Finance, Marco Antonio Moreno Mexía, stated that the state administration has implemented tax actions that have allowed for personal income and financial autonomy to grow by 21%.

"The state government has made it its goal to use all of its available resources with support from financial agents and sustainable development banks to increase in a substantive manner investment in infrastructure that will allow to make of Baja California a more competitive state," the state official said.

Three essential investment groups are addressed: Programs to treat and restore all wastewater sanitation plants in the state, programs to transport water to avoid potable water losses, and the desalination program that allows this process to be activated to incorporate new sources of water supply in the state.

Regarding sustainable public water services terms, the first projects that are receiving financing have been selected and they are related to potable water projects, sanitary sewage, wastewater treatment plants, and the acquisition of equipment or the development of potable water supply sources.
