NL: Trade mission agriculture and water Mexico

Agriculture and horticulture are responsible for 70% of the total water use in Mexico. At this moment, many agri-food producers rely on obsolete irrigation systems and lack proper wastewater treatment, water reuse, and water catchment technologies, have limited access to technical assistance, and a high dependency on chemical inputs. Policymakers and agricultural producers are currently looking at the relationship between water, energy, and land use. How can water be used more efficiently? There is a strong need for smart solutions.

A market study commissioned by the Netherlands Embassy in 2021 into the opportunities for Dutch water companies in the Mexican agricultural sector concluded that Dutch companies interested in capitalizing on these opportunities should focus on five identified regions, the so-called “hotspots.” These hotspots are highly productive agri-food regions with water issues that could be addressed by Dutch experts and producers that are able and willing to afford Dutch technology. The study describes the specific water issues and situations of each of these hotspots.

The upcoming water mission to Mexico, which is organized by the Netherlands Embassy in Mexico, will visit two of these hotspots, i.e., the state of Baja California Norte (Northwestern Mexico) and the state of Jalisco in the Bajío-Occidente (Central–West Mexico) region. Both hotspots are in urgent need of solutions for the important water issues they experience, with high-value agricultural production.
