How we helped
We designed a system to prioritize capital investment projects for Mexico’s water sector. To do this, we selected the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) as the most suitable prioritization system for CONAGUA’s needs. We adapted the AHP to CONAGUA’s priorities in water resource management, and built prioritization models that rank projects based on six criteria (economic, environmental, institutional capacity, political, technical, and social). We worked closely with CONAGUA staff to build capacity and ensure the system’s implementation.
