Water resources in Mexico

Source(s):  Springer

This publication looks at water resources in Mexico which, according to the authors, are threatened by scarcity, pollution and climate change. In two decades water consumption has doubled, producing water stress in dry seasons and semi-arid and arid regions. In seven parts a multidisciplinary team has analyzed hydrological processes in basins and their interaction with climate, soil and biota. The report states that competing water use in agriculture, industry and domestic needs required savings, decontamination processes and desalination to satisfy the growing demand. It concludes that that water quality affects health and ecosystems, which can lead to conflicts and cooperation that may be enhanced by public policy, institution building and social organization.
