Regional Committee on Hydraulic Resources - CRRH
Constitutive agreement
The Regional Committee on Hydraulic Resources (CRRH) was created on September 9, 1966, as the counterpart to the Central American Hydrometeorological Project (PHCA); upon conclusion of the PHCA in 1975, the Central American governments decided to keep the CRRH as an intergovernmental entity financed with their own contributions. The current members of the CRRH are: Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala and Belize.

Structure
The intergovernmental governing body is made up by the governments of the seven members of the CRRH through their country president or through a government official that in some cases belongs to the Ministries of Environment, Natural Resources or Water Resources Institutions.

Functions
Coordinate and facilitate projects relating to water resources issues: Design them, obtain regional or international funding or look for executing agencies. Its objective is to strengthen the policies of the national institutions, improve integral water and transborder resources demand management, and strengthen Central American ties with regional and worldwide programs for meteorological surveillance, hydrological cycle, climate change follow-up and design of adaptation and mitigation policies.
