Socializing the scope and perspectives of the El Agua Nos Une Project

The Rímac basin is one of the basins most vulnerable to climate change and water scarcity, since it is home to the cities of Lima and Callao, two of the most populated in the country and, furthermore, which concentrate a significant percentage of the Gross Domestic Product national, by the number of industries and companies operating in said spaces.

The "Water Unites Us" Project, facilitated by the CARE Peru SABAVIDA Consortium, seeks to strengthen alliances and synergies in spaces and with institutions that have the same objectives and scope, so that the actions are complementary and thus have a greater impact to improve water management and promote a water culture throughout society.


In this sense, there was the first participation in the radio program "LA HORA del AGUA", a space promoted by the National Water Authority through the CHIRILU Water Resources Basin Council, where the Head of the project Francisco Medina Castro, socialized the scope of the project and dealt with issues related to the environmental situation in the Rimac basin. One of the actions that the Project will promote will be support for awareness and communication campaigns in the basin with the aim of reaching more users and residents, who are aware of the risks and responsibilities of living in such a vulnerable basin.
