DESCRIPTION

The LAIF contribution aims to improve water and sewerage infrastructures and contribute to reducing the risk of diseases caused by deficient water management in the Latin American region through the development of various projects. These are grouped into two components: Component I, projects for adaptation to climate change (ACC) and Component II, projects for the integrated management of water resources.

The projects include the reinforcement of capacities associated with the programs; studies developed in the pre-investment phase to identify new investments in new actions; review of regulations and the development of methodologies, tools and manuals, which in turn will have an impact on future investments.

RESULTS
Support for the inclusion of ACC measures (especially in relation to extreme events such as droughts and floods), both in policies and investments related to the water and sanitation sector; and influence on the development of policies and investments in the sector through the promotion of solutions adapted to the needs and capacities of the population. Eleven studies have been financed in seven countries. Four additional actions with a regional scope have been launched.
