Abstract

© 2017, Universidad de Tarapaca. All rights reserved. The objective of this work is to analyze the process of establishing a community committee and its involvement to improve environmental conditions under a logic of collective action in San José Chiltepec, Oaxaca, Mexico; where a problem of supply of drinking water and contamination in surface waters exists. To this end, the community was involved in improving its environmental situation through participatory workshops. The main results show that voluntary collective conservation action has contributed to the establishment of a local committee, deriving from this, the design of an internal decree to regulate actions aimed at the sanitation of water sources; and the validation of the document before the community assembly. The committee is presented as a success story due to the degree of local participation, but it requires strengthening capacities and institutional support to achieve continuity and scaling at the regional level.
