    A tool for water resource management & planning
    in Latin America and the Caribbean

What is Hydro-BID?

Hydro-BID is a simulation tool created by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to support the management and planning of water resources in the Latin America and the Caribbean region.

We have been working hand in hand with regional and local water utility companies to learn more about their water management challenges so we can provide them with better support and training. Hydro-BID is currently being piloted in Argentina, Peru, Ecuador, Brazil, and Haiti.
