In the first half of 2023, the first workshops and baseline surveys were carried out for community monitoring of biodiversity and water quality in the states of Jalisco and Veracruz. The project's mission took shape in Veracruz, with the active participation of regional funds, INECC, and other strategic partners. As part of the RÍOS actions, training was also provided to the operational team on issues related to security and first aid in remote areas to strengthen institutional security protocols. Currently, consultancies have been formalized that will play a crucial role in community water monitoring, in promoting the National Strategy for River Restoration (ENRR), and in identifying the needs and key actors for the financing of projects focused on the regenerative livestock and agroforestry systems adapted to climate change. Regarding the ENRR, the Design Committee has been established, which has allowed the validation of the critical path for defining the guidelines, objectives, and scope of this strategy.

RÍOS prepared an Environmental and Social Assessment (EAS, acronym in Spanish) as part of the Simplified Approval Process (SAP) submitted to the GCF.
RÍOS is considered by the GCF to be a Category C project, or minimal to no risk, and therefore has a positive impact on ecosystems, biodiversity, and the livelihoods of the people it benefits.
