SAMANIEGO LOPEZ, Marco Antonio. International Basins and Social Uses of Water: Creation of Spheres of Cooperation and Conflict: North of Mexico and West of the United States. Secuencia [online]. 2012, n.83, pp.145-177. ISSN 2395-8464.

Relations between Mexico and the UnitedStates have been studied from various perspectives. But rarely has a meaningful analysis been included on the social uses of water or the context of the diplomatic relations regarding this issue. The link between international basins and the formation of the Mexican north is that as a result of the development of the American west, agreements were established that benefitted both countries. The incorporation of new technologies in the late 19th and early 20th century and the construction of irrigation works, specifically in the Mexican north, has been one of development factors in agricultural zones. This article seeks to study the basins shared with the United States and the formation of the Mexican north, taking into account the strengths and discussions of the relationship over shared basins.

Keywords : international basin; Mexican north; American west; surface currents; codependence; Agreements.
