Water & Environment

National Certification System of Water Footprint


The project seeks to develop Water Stewardship Standard, which has to be internationally recognized and must become a competitiveness tool for the agro-export sector in sophisticated markets. During 3 years, work has been done in the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS). This Alliance has coordinated the development of the Standard through the Global Water Roundtable (GWRT), in compliance with the guidelines of ISEAL. Nowadays we have an implementable standard and an operation model in public consultation. The project activities are:

  • Participation in the Latin American and Caribbean Coordinating Committee (AWSLAC)
  • Participation in the International Standard Development Committee (ISDC)
  • Participation in the advisory group for the business model development
  • Execution of 3 pilot tests of the Standard
  • 8 advocacy seminars of the Standard in Chile
  • 1 national event of contribution gathering from the parties
  • Presentation of the project in over 20 opportunities in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, United State, Peru and Sweden.
