In the first half of 2022, in coordination with the Technical Coordinating Unit and the regional funds and with INECC's technical leadership, the call for subprojects was disseminated through different channels, including face-to-face workshops and reaching more than 260,000 people on social networks. Following the dissemination of the calls for proposals, 30 proposals were received. Of these, with the support of groups of independent experts and the monitoring of the Productive Landscapes Technical Committee, those that met the requirements were evaluated, and 14 subproject proposals were pre-selected. Subsequently, the formalization of contracts with the pre-selected organizations began, and they were accompanied in the identification of possible risks and impacts and mitigation measures.

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.
