Abstract

En el Salvador no existe una Ley General que regule lo concerniente a la conservación, uso y calidad del agua como recurso esencial para la vida y para la bioeconomia del país dado que interviene en una cadena de procesos para la producción de alimentos y bebidas. Este análisis tiene como propósito identificar las fortalezas y debilidades en cuanto a garantizar la preservación y uso sostenido del recurso agua como un bien común al alcance de la humanidad sin ninguna limitante de orden económico, dado que son los estados y los pobladores los encargados de velar por la existencia y calidad de dicho recurso. La escasez de agua es considerada como un problema de orden hidrológico, pero que corresponde en mayor grado a un problema económico, dado que es un recurso limitado y que se utiliza en un 90% para actividades económicas y primordialmente para el consumo humano.
