WOP: Aguas del Norte - CAESB 1st stage
The first memorandum of understanding signed in 2010 formalised IDB's commitment to providing funds to put the partnership on track. According to this agreement, the primary objective of the partnership during this period was to support Aguas del Norte in developing its energy efficiency plan (e.g. including resource optimisation and autonomous energy production). The reduction and treatment of algae blooms in surface water sources as well as the disposal of wastewater treatment residue were also on the agenda. Period of implementation 2010–2012.
