With the data of this organism, a study of water consumption in the XXI century (2000-2019) is carried out, in terms of the distributed volume and the origin of each water resource. The evolution of the contributions to the water mix of surface water, transferred water and desalination are analyzed. It is emphasized that the supply of the resource has been diversified and that it is necessary to maintain it, in parallel with the improvement of the distribution networks and socio-environmental awareness.</p> Miguel Borja Bernabé-Crespo Copyright (c) 2021 Miguel Borja Bernabé-Crespo Wed, 09 Feb 2022 00:00:00 +0000 From metabolic rift to accumulation by dispossession: lithium mining, ecological imperialism and hydric looting in the argentinean northwest <p>With its epicentre in the so-called Lithium Triangle’s salars, lithium is a key raw material for the contemporary capitalism. Essential to the production of rechargeable batteries -which are necessary for both restructuring automotive industry towards the electric vehicles and performing the energy transition from hydrocarbons to renewable sources-, the lithium extraction from brines is a highly hydro-intensive activity carried out in extremely arid regions. Using official data, scholar literature and corporate and journalistic reports, this paper characterizes the lithium boom in the Argentinean Northwest (provinces of Jujuy and Catamarca) and studies both the hydric consumption of such activity and the conflicts between mining companies and local communities regarding the access to water. The findings show that lithium mining operates as a mechanism of accumulation by dispossession and ecological imperialism that snatches social groups (aborigines, specially) from the water they need to survive.</p> Sebastián Gómez Lende Copyright (c) 2021 Sebastián Gómez Lende Wed, 09 Feb 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Tightening the Screws: Irrigation and the State in Mexico, 1888-1939 <p>From the law on the use of waters under federal jurisdiction of 1910 to the national water law of 1992, there are concepts that have remained in force or with minimal changes. The article aims to offer elements of how the intervention of the State occurs in the social organization of irrigators in a semi-arid area in Mexico in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This is a historical work that analyzes the regulations on the uses of water in the first federal intervention in this matter. The study focuses on two aspects, the difference between centralization and federalization and the way in which the State intervenes in social organization. The contribution of the work is that it applies a new approach to the process of federalization of water in Mexico that has to do with social organization.</p> Martín Sánchez Rodríguez Copyright (c) 2021 Martín Sánchez Rodríguez Wed, 09 Feb 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Water resource management: improvement guidelines for the Council of the Hydrographic Region of Central Portugal and for the Apodi- Mossoró River Basin Committee in Brazil <p>This work aims to define guidelines for the management of water resources in Portugal and Brazil. For this, the methodology includes: systematic literature review, documentary research on water law and application of a SWOT matrix. It was found that these models present positive points related to the feasible time for planning, articulation with water agencies and interaction with external actors. Negative aspects mention external dependence on structure, performance dependent on public power, lack of resources and scarcity of data. Opportunities are efficient management, knowledge of the reality of water systems, external resource capture and new environmental technologies. External threats include concentration of information, conflicts of interest and the need for investments. Therefore, it is recommended to reverse this scenario with strategic planning of water resources.</p> Jorge Luís de Oliveira Pinto Filho, Lucio Cunha Copyright (c) 2021 Jorge Luís de Oliveira Pinto Filho, Lucio Cunha Wed, 09 Feb 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Is water life? Daily life and territoriality in the context of forest and water scarcity in the Mapuche-huilliche community Antü Wilef, San Juan de la Costa, Chile <p>The Antü Wilef community in Chile lives with the problem of water scarcity in a forestry context. The main objective of the article is to expose the way in which this problem affects the daily life of the community and its notion of territoriality. The study is developed from a bibliographic review and interviews with members of the community and people close to it. Based on this, it is concluded that the lack of water has repercussions in the cultural, social and economic areas of the community. In addition, the way in which the community deals with the problem through its own initiatives and administration of the resources provided by the State is presented. The study has been developed throughout 2020, with the limitations of the health situation affecting the country and the world.</p> Francisco Pérez Hernández Copyright (c) 2021 Francisco Pérez Hernández Wed, 09 Feb 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Reuse of wastewater, treated by phytoremediation, for the irrigation of the Botanical Garden ‘‘le jardin Landon’’ (Biskra, Algeria). Sustainable solution for the preservation of a material heritage site <p>The green spaces of the city of Biskra (Algeria) resist the arid climate of the summer season and therefore suffer from water scarcity caused mainly by evaporation and transpiration of the plants. To remedy this problem, the study suggests to reuse the sewage for irrigation after being purified, using constructed wetlands with improved capacity by phytoremediation. As an example of a sustainable solution, it is proposed to apply this technique to the botanical garden of the city of Biskra (Algeria), «le jardin Landon». The design of a Constructed Wetland system is proposed. The Landon Garden was created in 1870 by Count Landon of Longueville, decorated with a variety of flora from the tropics and the Equatorial countries. It is currently considered as national material heritage.</p> Mahmoud Debabèche, Ayoub Barkat , Mohamed Ali Boukebous Copyright (c) 2021 Mahmoud Debabèche, Ayoub Barkat , Mohamed Ali Boukebous Wed, 09 Feb 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Surface water mobilization: General comments on dams in Algeria in the past, present and future <p>Algeria is located in a region with an arid climate, which requires rational management of water resources. According to the current state of knowledge, the mobilisation of water through dams started with diversion works before the colonial period. During the colonial period (1830-1962), sixteen dams with a total capacity of one billion m3 were built. It was only after independence that large dams were erected to reach a capacity of about nine billion m3 in 2020. The preservation of these structures is one of the current and future priorities. The phenomenon of silting risks compromising development in terms of water mobilisation. Currently, the storage capacity lost through silting is 11 %. To remedy this phenomenon, studies have been carried out at the University of Biskra (Algeria) with Hydrocoop-France which have made it possible to define new techniques for increasing storage capacity.</p> Ahmed Ouamane, Ilyese Sekkour, Bassem Athmani Copyright (c) 2021 Ahmed Ouamane, Ilyese Sekkour, Bassem Athmani Wed, 09 Feb 2022 00:00:00 +0000 MATÉS BARCO, Juan Manuel y ROJAS-RAMÍREZ, José Juan Pablo (eds.). 2018: Agua y servicios públicos en España y México, Jaén, UJA Editorial & Universidad de Guadalajara (México), 293 págs.
