EUROCLIMA+, present at the most important environmental trade fair in Colombia

The project 'Governance of Water and Territory in the Water Region of the Atriz Valley', which is being implemented in the department of Nariño, was presented at the International Environment Fair

- FIMA, as part of the stand of the European Union, guest of honour at this event.

4 October 2021. Bogotá, Colombia. Thousands of people heard about EUROCLIMA+ on behalf of ‘Water and Territory Governance in the Water Region of the Atriz Valley - RHVA’, the project that represented the Urban Water sector at the International Environment Fair - FIMA, the most important environmental fair that takes place every year in Colombia and that this time took place from 29 September to 2 October in Bogotá, the capital of the country. This year the event counted on the European Union as guest of honour.

Attendees visiting the stand learned about this project, implemented by the French Development Agency - AFD, and led by EMPOPASTO, and also about the water sector projects supported by EUROCLIMA+, through an infographic that was distributed to the attendees on recycled paper, in line with the sustainability objectives proposed within the framework of the fair.

Delegates of the French Development Agency were in charge of telling visitors about the details of this project that will be implemented in the municipalities of Pasto and Tangua in Nariño, and will benefit more than 530,000 inhabitants who will have access to safe, quality drinking water.


Through brochures, infographics and by presenting the campaign Yo#CuidoElAgua (I#ConserveWater), this project demonstrated the importance of joining efforts with national and international partners to strengthen the resilience of cities to the effects of climate change, and to work for the preservation of water supply basins while strengthening the capacities and governance of institutions.

This is one of the main objectives of Water and Territorial Governance in the RHVA, a project that aims to implement a Territorial Water Agency, linking and articulating the efforts of international cooperation, local authorities, institutions and inhabitants of the region.
