Un estudio sobre la representatividad sostenible
AbstractBeing a social development project, sustainability points to the neo-liberal State as its main handicap. Before such failures, eco-social competences emerge among individuals, in order to preserve natural resources, by measuring out their consumption and diversifying its use. In that sense, water waste in opulent zones has an impact on economically marginalized areas. This is explained in its socio-economic, political and demographic context, which prevent sustainable human development. In order to explain the effects of an expensive, irregular and unhealthy water supply in Mexico City, the Sustainable Democracy Theory is supported. Five variables are modeled in causal logic paths: (1) ecosystem situation, (2) water competence, (3) communal identity, (4) environmental participation and (5) sustainable representativeness. Once proved causal relations likelihood, indirect effects are displayed, which are positive and significant for irregular supply upon water save through resource shortage perceptions and conservation reasons. Finally, a water quotation, dose and re-utilization is designed, applied and evaluate. The proposal is a sustainable water democracy foundation, according to the social, demographic, economic and political context in the megalopolis.
