MAP - PROJECT INTERVENTION AREAS



“With the water sowing and harvesting system, we created a lagoon that has changed our household economy. With a few cows, we had a good milk yield; we got processed cheese, three flavors of yogurt, custard; and we also produced corn.”
Henry Murillo, La Esperanza Reservoir - Guanacaste (Costa Rica)

"From a local initiative (water sowing and harvesting in Peru), we have created an impact on public policies and the regulatory framework of water management in Costa Rica.”
Gustavo Solano, Binational Project Coordinator
