Since 2006, water authorities of the Valley of Mexico and Seine Normandy Water Agency have worked together to find solutions for water issues in their basin. This partnership was reactivated on the occasion of COP 21, and deals with urban drainage (rainwater + wastewater) technical exchange in order to develop recommendations designed to strengthen the Drainage Metropolitan Commission of the Valley of Mexico. Moreover, the partnership engages in a comparison of the French and Mexican modes of operation of the two authorities, and seeks to identify strengths and weaknesses in order to reinforce integrated water resources governance.
