WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Considering the occurrence of extreme weather events, Chile will be impacted in the long term by water scarcity, which will negatively influence the production of hydroelectric energy and agricultural production (OECD, 2016). This situation has already begun to generate problems in food and energy security, loss of ecosystems and biodiversity of the goods and services they provide and affect the quality of life of people and the development of the country.
In this context, the initiative supports models for watershed management in Chile. Companies play a fundamental role in the search for solutions that sustain their own production over time and the development of their shared environment. SuizAgua aims to generate a sustainable agroindustrial/export sector over time, regarding water requirements, considering both the production process and their location.
