In the second half of 2022, in coordination with the Technical Coordinating Unit and the regional funds and with INECC's technical leadership, 13 contracts for subprojects were formalized. Progress was made in defining sites, creating brigades, adjusting methodologies, and purchasing material to carry out community monitoring of biodiversity, soils, water, and vulnerability. Start-up workshops were held in Jalisco and Veracruz, with induction sessions on safeguards and gender. Terms of reference were published for a consulting firm to facilitate the design of the basis for a National Strategy for River Restoration (ENRR).

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.
