Mexico Water Report 2015
BMI View: Overall we hold a relatively positive view of the country's water services and sanitation servicessectors, however we continue to highlight that the risk of delays or cancellations of projects due to publicprotests pose significant threats to infrastructure companies and services. Moreover the constraint onimprovements poses a risk to water availability for agriculture and industrial sectors alike. This latterconcern is compounded by droughts, water shortages and rationing.
In Mexico, there are a number of issues inhibiting the water industry's full development, includingwidespread pollution, the over-politicisation of the water sector and the numerous riots and public protestsagainst new water developments. However, progress is being made, with strong government support andinvestment in the sector (which is becoming increasingly open to private involvement), as well as thepotential revision of water regulations to create a more cohesive water management plan. Althoughinfrastructure investment will improve efficiency, we expect overall extraction and consumption to increaseas demand continues to grow, particularly from the agricultural and industrial sectors.
