Abstract

This paper develops a chronicle of the arise and evolution of a communitarian and intersectional coordination web that for over five years has been looking forward to halt and revert the environmental degradation in San Antón, a urban community located at the shore of the Apatlaco river, one of the main watercourses in Cuernavaca, Morelos, which bears high pollution levels.The paper presents the communitarian development of an autonomous process of management and regulation, related to the local ecosystem in an urban frame. It focuses on socioeconomic institutional change and its possible role in the resolution of coordination failures and the internalization of environmental externalities.
