Access to drinking water is a form of ethical relationship between citizens and their governments. This article aims to understand how the dialogue in the scientific sphere has been regarding the ethical use of water and its impacts on global health. Methodologically, it seeks to analyze the commitment of different actors and sciences in ethical issues in relation to the use of water, as well as public policies of health education, which is essential, to overcome the current vulnerabilities. As an outcome, it is interpreted that water and human health are interpreted are directly codependent, consequently, and therefore cannot be neglected. In addition, as a finite resource, water makes the ethical debate even more urgent, as it is necessary to guarantee this human right for all.</p> Caroline Filla Rosaneli, Marta Luciane Fischer, Anor Sganzerla, Alberto Paulo Neto Copyright (c) 2021 Caroline Filla Rosaneli, Marta Luciane Fischer, Anor Sganzerla, Alberto Paulo Neto Wed, 08 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +0000 River socio-natures in Latin America: Theoretical-methodological notes <p>Rivers have had a central place in the Americas history, since the arrival of the first humans, until the recent past; from the extreme south to the extreme north, east and west. Running through plains and mountains, tropical jungles and desert areas, reaching the sea or disappearing in the heart of the land, its presence has been ubiquitous. Through historical environmental investigation of its influences, uses, representations, conflicts and technical interventions; we will give an account of some approaches to the understanding of the mutual interactions between society and water. In this presentation, I will review how these historical narratives have been built around water dynamics, their temporal and spatial multiscalarity, how material and biophysical characteristics of rivers have influenced social developments and the importance of power relations.</p> Gabriel Garnero Copyright (c) 2021 Gabriel Garnero Fri, 05 Nov 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Spaces of natural risks and threats in Santiago, Chile: the Mapocho River as a geosymbol of disasters in the 18th century <p>This research analyzes the relationship between the city of Santiago de Chile and the Mapocho River as a space for risks and threat during the 18th century. In order to do this, we observed the responses of the population and the civil and ecclesiastical authorities against the dangers of the river when the city was the scene of several threats such as diseases, droughts, rains, fluvial floods and the melting of the Cordillera. We have used various sources such as travelers' reports, official communications, technical reports, the debates of the Cabildo de Santiago, and printed works contemporary to the studio. The results allow us to conclude that the episodes of floods, droughts and epidemic outbreaks transformed the Mapocho River into a geosymbol for disasters in the social and institutional images of the city.</p> Andrea Noria Peña Copyright (c) 2021 Andrea Noria Peña Fri, 05 Nov 2021 00:00:00 +0000 The rivers and the modernizing project in western Argentina: the case of río de Los Sauces, Córdoba (1880-1930) <p>Towards the end of the 19th century, Argentina took a leading role as a supplier of agricultural and livestock products for the international market. The arid and semiarid zones in the northwest of the country, central during the colonial period, were relegated from this process. The ruling elites and technicians saw rivers as elements that would put those regions on the path of progress. The main goal of our research is analyze how the elites of the province of Córdoba interpreted the problem of geographic disparity, and the role they gave to rivers in the modernization project; focusing specifically on the case of the Los Sauces river, in the Traslasierra valley. Likewise, through the documentary analysis of primary sources -administrative, legislative, scientific and from the presswe will analyze which engineering interventions reflected the hydraulic mission of the State and their biophysical and social consequences.</p> Gabriel Garnero Copyright (c) 2021 Gabriel Garnero Thu, 25 Nov 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Urban rivers and public authority: the case of the Verruga river in Vitória da Conquista, Bahia, Brazil, in the second half of the 20th century <p>The purpose of this article is to discuss the water management of the Verruga river by the local government when analysing the urbanization process in Vitória da Conquista, Bahia, Brazil, in the second half of the 20th century. In this sense, the actions taken by José Fernandes Pedral Sampaio, former mayor and political leadership in the municipality, were considered for the research, based on the analysis of an interview collected in 2000 using the oral story methodology. This procedure sought to investigate through the fragments of the memory contained in the interview, the changes that were made in the riverbed and relate them to the current urban fabric of the city. The results provide evidence of how the actions of the public authorities played a decisive role in the relationship between the city of Vitória da Conquista and the Verruga River.</p> Luisa Prazeres Vasconcelos, Felipe Eduardo Ferreira Marta Copyright (c) 2021 Luisa Prazeres Vasconcelos, Felipe Eduardo Ferreira Marta Fri, 03 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +0000 The Meta River in the Frontier-Making Process of Colombia, 1532-2016 <p>The Meta River is the most important waterway in the Colombian Eastern Plains. It has been navigated for different purposes since pre-Hispanic times and connects the region with the Andes and the Atlantic. This article aims to present the history of the role played by the Meta River as an instrument for the penetration of capitalism that contributed to creating and consolidating the Eastern Plains’ status as a frontier. From a perspective of environmental history, a review of primary and secondary sources was carried out to inquire about the impact of the river in the process of frontiermaking, which has generated the idea of the Llanos (Plains) as an empty and wild space. In this way, the river has been an instrument used to perpetuate the continuous extraction of resources that have been specifically linked to the circuits of capital that have profoundly transformed its landscapes.</p> Diana Carolina Ardila-Luna Copyright (c) 2021 Diana Carolina Ardila-Luna Fri, 03 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +0000 The Río Grande River and the Interoceanic Corridor in Panama´s Transit Region, 1500-1914 <p>The environmental history of the río Grande, a Panamanian river which drained into the Pacific and whose valley was devastated by the construction of the Panama Canal across the isthmus, offers an early case of a Latin American river subject to a hydro-metabolic fracture, and of a key riverscape in the environmental history of Panama´s transit region. This paper will reconstruct the trajectory of the river through a narrative based on the realist approach to environmental history, especially its concepts of social metabolism and the metabolic rift, as a way to trace the roots of Panama´s current environmental structures. Due to the size of the territory of the Republic of Panama, the watershed´s transformation was determined by national political economy, at various scales and across a <em>longue durée </em>delimited by <em>transitismo </em>as the dominant paradigm among decision makers.</p> Francisco Javier Bonilla Copyright (c) 2021 Francisco Javier Bonilla Wed, 08 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +0000 “From immemorial time”: Uses and the Distribution of Water in the Tlalnepantla River, Mexico, 1685-1930 <p>This article will analyze the importance of the colonial divisions of the Tlalnepantla River and how this situation was turned upside down with the Agrarian Reform of the 20<sup>th</sup> century through a quantitative study, within the framework of social history. It is shown that the irrigation tradition established since 1685 allowed a shared use of water, always giving preponderance to the productive units. The agrarian reform provided the opportunity for peasants to become subjects of irrigation on their ejido lands. Their arguments to achieve this alluded to rights to which they had had water since time immemorial, and for this they used documents and oral testimonies. This study on the Tlalnepantla River is part of the historiography about the agrarian demands for water and the importance of a colonial irrigation tradition.</p> Rebeca Lopez Mora Copyright (c) 2021 Rebeca Lopez Mora Sat, 04 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Journal policies Revista Agua y Territorio Copyright (c) 2022 Revista Agua y Territorio Mon, 31 Jan 2022 00:00:00 +0000 SIMÓN RUIZ, Inmaculada y ARAVENA RODRÍGUEZ, Brandon, 2020: El ciclo hidrosocial una propuesta didáctica desde la historia, la geografía, las ciencias sociales y la educación para la ciudadanía.
