Mexico’s Private Water Landscape: Municipal Drivers and Public-Private Partnerships

31 Jan 2023
Available with corporate subscription

Climate change, competition for scarce water supplies, and service providers’ inability to recover costs are putting pressure on Mexico’s increasingly underfunded water sector. By 2030, demand for water in Mexico is expected to reach 91 billion cubic meters (24 trillion gallons), while available supplies are predicted to meet just 75% of demand. Public investment in water infrastructure has struggled to keep pace with a growing population and is down 67% since peaking in 2012.

While the National Water Commission (CONAGUA) received approval for its highest budget ever for 2023—including an ambitious US$3.5 billion for water infrastructure—these investments are likely insufficient to modernize the sector.
