The Association for the Integral Development of Municipalities of the Altiplano Marquense (ADIMAM) is a beneficiary of the Cooperation Fund for Water and Sanitation (FCAS) through the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation for Development (AECID) to implement the program / project entitled "Programa of Water and Sanitation with focus of Cuenca in the upper part of the Sub-basin of the Cuilco River ". The financing comes within the context of law 51/2007, of December 26, of General Budgets of the Spanish State for the year 2008, where the Cooperation Fund for Water and Sanitation (FCAS) was created, aimed at financing actions within the policy of International Cooperation for Development to enforce the right to water and sanitation, designating the Official Credit Institute (ICO) as its financial agent.
Within this context, agreement number GTM-014-B is signed between the Official Credit Institute -ICO-, on behalf of the Government of Spain and ADIMAM located in the department of San Marcos, Guatemala, to help improve access to drinking water and sanitation of the inhabitants of ADIMAM's territory of influence.
The contribution of the Spanish government is very important to address three common problems in the three municipalities associated with ADIMAM in relation to the drinking water and sanitation sector: (a) Access to the service, considering parameters of quality, quantity, continuity and sustainability; (b) Institutional capacities at the municipal and inter-municipal levels; (c) environmental and hygienic habits of the population.
With this program / project, the access of the population to potable water and sanitation services will be improved, for which it is necessary to strengthen the technical, administrative and economic installed capacity to carry out an efficient and effective management of said services.See more
