|Spanish Government Environmental Infrastructure Investment in 1990-1996|
In 1990, the Spanish Government invested $506 million in the environment. By 1994, the figure had increased to $2.9 billion.
The Spanish Government invested an estimated $1.9 billion in environmental projects in 1995 and 1996. The estimated figure for 1997 was $2.9 billion.
The Spanish Government approved new pollution control plans for water, soil, and toxic waste at an estimated cost of $14 billion from 1995 to 2005. The national government was to provide about 25 percent of the money; the rest was to be provided by the autonomous regions and local governments.
The national government approved investments of $158 million for the construction of infrastructure for waste treatment in Salamanca, Fuenlabrada, Gijón, Palencia, San Sebastián, and Benidorn.
A new coalition government under the leadership of the conservative Partido Popular (PP) took office and created the Spanish Ministry of Environment. The new government also amended investment projections and introduced new concepts that called for greater participation of the private sector in infrastructure development and environmental projects.
