The partnership is a mechanism that allows to provide technical and financial assistance for the creation and strengthening of Water Funds. It provides support to local stakeholders to implement them, contributing to establish the management structure for each fund.

It also provides advice and technical expertise that can strengthen the operation of the funds, and also facilitate the exchange of experiences and best practices among Water Funds and other stakeholders.

Hydrological Monitoring in Water Funds

The concept that ecosystems provide services to human societies beyond intrinsic biodiversity value has strongly arisen in the last decade of the 20th century. Since then, this idea has been gaining traction and increased importance in many places around the world. The Water Funds trajectory in Latin America, since its first case implemented in 2000 in Quito, Ecuador, has been one of the best examples of this concept in action. At the moment of this publication, there are 19 Water Funds established from Mexico to Brazil and 24 more in their planning stages, all over the continent and mostly located in major metropolitan areas.
