CONTRASTS BETWEEN COMMUNITY AND GOVERNMENT WATER MANAGEMENT IN CIÉNEGA DE CHAPALA, MICHOACÁN, MÉXICO

Abstrac


Supplying water to México’s whole population implies serious problems when government capacity to satisfy the demand for water resources is low. Experiences and abilities in community organization to solve water needs with their own resources are important if a process of governance for the liquid is sought to be generated in the regional scope. This article analyzes two different management models for the resource, for human consumption: community and governmental, in Ciénega de Chapala localities, in the state of Michoacán. Contrasts are evident in terms of actors involved in the models, forms of election, legal conditions, temporality of their administration, control mechanisms, and differences in tubed water coverage in the towns.

Palabras clave: management, governance, region, rural.
