IWRA has a cooperative relationship with Mexico due to the shared interest to prioritise water resources and environmental management, stressing this through various global conferences, such as the 4th World Water Forum held in Mexico in 2006.


IWRA, as founding institution of the World Water Council (WWC), green-lighted Mexico to host the 4th World Water Forum in 2006, having as organising host the National Water Commission (CONAGUA) with an attendance of 20,000 people from around the world that participated in 206 meetings under the theme: "Local Actions for a Global Challenge". Back then Aly Shady, President of IWRA, and from Mexico, Cristobal Jaime Jaquez, Director General of CONAGUA, and Alvaro Aldama, Director General of the Mexican Institute of Water Technology (IMTA) participated in the event.


Moreover, IWRA strengthen cooperative relations with Mexico through the National Association of Water and Sanitation Utilities (ANEAS) that is a WWC Board of Governors member, as well as the National Water Commission, host institution of the 52nd WWC Meeting, where IWRA represented by Dr. Dogan Altinbilek, participated in his capacity as Vice President.


Presently IWRA entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with ANEAS to develop and hold the 16th World Water Congress in Cancun, Mexico in 2017. During this meeting it was agreed to have the support of CONAGUA, representing the Mexican government, and ANEAS and IWRA to host the 16th edition of the IWRA Congress.
