The project seeks to identify approaches and tools which allow to build an integrated and sustainable management of water resources in the Rapel River Basin. A fundamental part of this project involves a participatory process which aims at understanding the needs and challenges of the local water users and stakeholders.
The project is financed through the Fund for Competitive Innovation of the Regional Government of O’Higgins and it’s Regional Council, framed in the Regional Strategy for Innovation and is carried out by CSIRO Chile and supported by the General Water Authority.
The Project “Plan de Gestión Integrada Cuenca Rapel” consists of two stages. Currently, stage 1 is being carried out, which will last 18 months (March 2016 – August 2017). Stage 2 is yet to be defined.
