Description/achievement of initiative

Beginning in 2012, FEMSA Foundation commits to help protect upstream water supplies by forming the Latin American Water Funds Partnership.

Implementation methodologies

According to the United Nations, over two-thirds of the global population could face water scarcity in the next 15 years. Water Funds can help turn the tide on clean water shortages around the world.
The Latin American Water Funds Partnership is the world's first initiative to engage the private and public sectors and civil society in this unique watershed conservation strategy, pioneered by The Nature Conservancy.
