Bahia de Banderas could be at risk of water scarcity

The World Economic Forum (WEF) identified water scarcity among the five main global risks. By 2025, two thirds of the world’s population could face water scarcity, that is, more than 3.5 billion people. According to the World Bank, the poorest countries and communities are the most vulnerable to poor water management.

In Mexico approximately 78 percent of the water is used for agricultural purposes. Of which 653 aquifers, 106 are overexploited, raising a real concern of depletion and contamination of this valuable resource in the country.

Bahía de Banderas analyzes proposals to avoid water scarcity

Water scarcity brings endless problems that end in crisis; starting with health, because its lack severely increases the mortality rate, especially among children and women. In addition, it is proven that this factor is also decisive for the effects of poverty, since people must spend too much time collecting this resource.

Nowadays, in some places water products and systems are being implemented, so that the supply is resolved immediately, safely and sustainably.

The government of Nayarit, the Municipality of Bahía de Banderas, a great number of persons interested in involving themselves with the solution to water scarcity, and the business sector of the area gathered together at the facilities of the ADEPM, for the task of searching for the best proposals. They listened to different proposals made by experts who have researched and made studies and analysis on the subject, who presented possible solutions for this problem that affects the whole municipality, from Nuevo Vallarta up to Lo de Marcos.     

Proposals were compared, the advantages and disadvantages of each were studied, an analysis was made of the feasibility that each project could have in the development of the municipality; doing this to finally integrate a priority project that will allow knocking on doors with the Federal government.

With real data and a project proposed by experts in the field, ADEPM made an approach with the Federal government who shared the concern of the municipality to prevent a problem of water scarcity, giving ADEPM an appointment last July 25th at the offices of the head of the Investment Unit of the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit, Jorge Nuño, who received the Secretary of Sustainable Development, David Guerrero, the Secretary of Infrastructure of Nayarit Architect Martha Patricia Urenda, Dr. Jaime Cuevas, Municipal Mayor, and Merced Venegas Director of Oromapas.

The project presented captured the complete interest of the hosting authorities deriving a very punctual agenda to follow up the implementation of the project and give the Municipality an effective and real solution that will avoid and resolves the scarcity of this valuable liquid.
