Water is an essential resource for the sustainment of life and is integral to the socioeconomic development of any nation-state. The Mexican federal government recognizes the importance of the water supply and has implemented improvements in the accessibility and quality of water distribution services for its citizenry. The governments efforts to implement structural reforms to improve water distribution services have been encouraging, but they have fallen short of meeting current and projected needs. Central to the current problem is insufficient financial capital to fully implement strategic modernization plans. This qualitative research paper explores expanding the development of business partnerships between the Mexican government e.g., federal, state, and local municipalities and the private sector as an attractive means to acquire the necessary financial capital and technical expertise to improve access to and quality of water distribution services among the Mexican citizenry. First, however, additional structural reforms must be implemented by the Mexican government to attract and retain the long-term private sector investment necessary to improve Mexicos water distribution infrastructure.
