Thursday, March 10, 2011


Since its inception in 2005,  the Water and Development Alliance (WADA), a partnership between Coca-Cola and the US Agency for International Development has initiated 30 projects in 23 countries. 

In El Salvador and Guatemala, for example, the alliance is working with sugar refineries and local governments to improve water and wastewater management practices. 

The $362,000 project, which began in 2009, is similar to other WADA projects initiated in recent years in Australia, Brazil, China and South Africa.
