Although it is a country with abundant natural resources, Nicaragua is lacking the basic infrastructure to ensure that a considerable part of the population enjoys a certain quality of life. This deficiency is all the more poignant, if we consider that 40% of this population are children.
With the help of international organizations, the Government is working to provide most of the population with access to basic services such as electricity, through the National Sustainable Electrification and Renewable Energy (PNSER) program.
This program will increase the coverage from 65% to 85% of the population, benefiting more than 1.7 million people.
IDOM is participating in this program, funded by the Inter-American Development Bank and the Nordic Fund. In collaboration with the German company MVV decon, IDOM is carrying out a study of the hydroelectric potential of the basins of two of the most important rivers, the Coco River and the Rio Grande de Matagalpa.
