¡Únase a nosotros por el aprovisionamiento y la seguridad del recurso hídrico en calidad y cantidad en el Gran Área Metropolitana (GAM) de Costa Rica! Agua Tica es el 1er fondo de agua público-privado y de la sociedad civil en Costa Rica. Las subcuencas del río Grande y el río Virilla sufren los crecientes efectos nocivos sobre el recurso hídrico y sus fuentes por las presiones que enfrenta el GAM tales como: el alto crecimiento poblacional, la escasez de ordenamiento territorial y el cambio de uso del suelo.

Agua Tica, el 1er fondo de agua del país, contribuye a la protección de las fuentes del recurso hídrico ubicadas en las subcuencas del río Grande y río Virilla del Gran Área Metropolitana (GAM). Esta zona es de especial interés debido a que concentra el 57% de la población y el 75% de industria nacional.  

Agua Tica es una alianza colaborativa con participación de la sociedad civil, instituciones públicas y la empresa privada.

La iniciativa parte de la ciencia y la métrica para sumar esfuerzos, sustentar y priorizar proyectos entre los actores públicos y privados, procurando la eficiencia en la inversión de los recursos para la protección y conservación del agua.
