In response to a severe drought suffered in 2002 in the central region of Veracruz, Mexico, the Fideicomiso para la Promoción y Preservación de la Zona Montañosa de Coatepec (Fidecoagua) was established as a decentralized public agency of the Coatepec City Council, in charge of the payment for environmental services program of Coatepec, the first of its kind at the national level.

As part of the collaboration agreement signed between Fidecoagua and Universidad Veracruzana in 2022, this project seeks to strengthen the payment for environmental services program by improving the living conditions of forest owners enrolled in it, increasing voluntary contributions to the fund and developing technical projects to support Fidecoagua’s management.
