El abanico de bancos de aguas en las Américas/The Range of Water Banks in the Americas



    () (Associate Professor, School of Geography and Development. University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ, U.S.A.)


¿Por qué ha crecido tanto el interés en los bancos de aguas? Porque son una respuesta al aumento de las demandas y de la competencia por el agua, tendencias que conllevan un aumento de la escasez relativa y de los conflictos. Mi objetivo en este documento es destacar la gama de experiencias en torno a los llamados bancos de aguas en los Estados Unidos, a partir del año 1990, haciendo hincapié en su relación con la protección ambiental. Why the interest has grown so much on water banks? They are a response for increasing demand and water competition, trends that increased the relative scarcity and conflict. The aim of this paper is to highlight the range of experiences on the so-called water banks in the United States, from 1990, with emphasis on its relationship with environmental protection
