Watershed basin agencies have been created to address these challenges. The purpose in establishing watershed basin agencies is to arrive at an integrated, sustainable, decentralized, and participatory form of water management. The agencies' mission consists of assessing, planning, and managing water resources in the country's water basins.
Agencies may grant loans, aid or subsidies to any person investing in water-resource development or conservation. Their funding comes from fees collected from water users, as well as from borrowed funds, subsidies and donations. Thanks to the flexibility of these agencies, all water users can benefit from their financial support and technical assistance.
