SOCIO-ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMATIC IN THE TEXCOCO RIVER BASIN. A LITERATURE REVIEW

Abstrac


The Texcoco River Basin has been widely studied due to its nearness to important learning and research centers. This article has the objective of reviewing the relevant literature, analyzing primarily two communities: San Diego Tlaylotlacán and San Pablo Ixáyoc. Among the problems found, there are the following: urban growth, which has brought with it the suspension of agricultural and forestry practices, as well as changes in the occupational structure; modernization of agriculture through the use of agrochemicals; deterioration of soils and increase in water demand. It is concluded that in order to resolve some of these problems, it is necessary to revisit inter-disciplinary approaches and involve inhabitants of the area in the research processes.
