In 2011, GWP El Salvador was one of three networks recognised by the government as allies in the consultative process for the revision of the draft Water Bill and the National Policy on Water and Sanitation.
The Government of El Salvador, recognising water's strategic role in national development, had initiated water reforms in 2010, which involved updating legislation and the institutional framework. It will be the first time that the country has a legal framework in which civil society has played such an important role.
GWP El Salvador has been one of the leaders in the creation of the dialogue platform that has succeeded in bringing together stakeholders and has promoted advancement of the reform. The passing of the Water Bill, expected in March 2013, will be a major step forward.
