Mexico - Water Utilities Efficiency Improvement (PROME)

Overview

This  technical assistance activity supported Mexico's National Water Commission  (CONAGUA)  development of detailed institutional, financial and technical procedures for  mplementing an RBF pilot approach within a US$100 million World Bank loan and sought to improve efficiency in delivering  reliable water and sanitation services to poor households.

Activities included:
  Detailed framework for RBF pilot sub-project in the water supply and sanitation.
  Technical assistance to 1-2 public utilities to prepare their participation in the RBF pilot.

Status

Closed.
After the Mexican government reviewed the RBF operational manual supported by this TA, a decision was made to not add an RBF component  into the existing World Bank loan but instead to consider preparing a new RBF program that the World Bank might support.
