Chile - The market of water rights and Integrated Water Resources Management

The Chilean Ministry of Public Works (MOP) and its General Directorate of Water (DGA), are working to develop an Action Plan for improving water resources management. It thus requested technical assistance from the World Bank to assess the situation and formulate a national strategy. IOWater contributed to the definition of the Action Plan for improving the institutional framework, with a particular focus on the necessary reforms. In particular, IOWater presented the French institutional “model” for water resources management and helped in the evaluation of the institutions in charge of water resources management in Chile.
