Water resource management in five mexican states

Jorge Alejandro Silva Rodríguez de San Miguel

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review

Abstract

Water resource management in Mexico is not uniform and despite the perceived benefits of decentralization, local administrators have not proved effective at enforcing compliance or at establishing adequate practices that might reduce strain upon underground aquifers. The aim of this review of literature is to investigate the advances that have been made in Mexico regarding the subject. By exploring a number of states in Mexico that seem to be at the forefront of the water crisis, the situation suggests that water use efficiency is often poorly understand or enforced, and that water reclamation efforts are not fully appreciated.
