TRAGSA shows off its water management projects within the framework of the World Water Week, a commitment with sustainable development
The World Water Week, which took place in Stockholm from August 28th to September 2nd, puts the focus every year on the question of water on the planet. This year, the program included more than 140 events which covered a wide range of issues, such as energy, plumbing, food, climate change, or water management, among others.
SIWI (Stockholm International Water Institute), the agency in charge of organizing this event, has chosen this year as its main issue the question of water for a sustainable growth.
The sustainable management of water is of outmost importance, as it constitutes a limited resource. At Grupo Tragsa, as experts in water management and planning, we contribute to an efficient management of water (surface and underground water), guaranteeing the sustainability of the related ecosystems.
Irrigation system on a cultivated field
A good example of the work which we develop on this issue is the Project for the Improvement of the Irrigation Network for the Canal Alto Community, implemented by Grupo TRAGSA in the Canary Islands on the coastal lands of the municipality of Tazacorte on the La Palma Island, an area totally occupied by banana crops.
With this project the goal is improving the area’s irrigation system, which will generate an increase in the number of land estates with irrigated land and in the number of farmers with access to irrigation, which will grow from the current 276 land estates and 207 farmers to 457 land estates and 364 farmers; which represents a new engine for the area’s farming.
TRAGSA and Grupo SEPI
Grupo TRAGSA belongs to Grupo SEPI, a corporate holding which includes a total of 16 state-owned companies in which it has direct, majority shareholding participations, with a workforce of around 73,000 professionals in 2014; the Spanish state-owned television and radio corporation, Corporación Radiotelevisión Española, which is attached to SEPI, and one public foundation. Equally, SEPI has direct minority shareholdings in a further ten companies, and indirect shareholdings in more than one hundred companies.
