Resumen

ESCOBEDO SAGAZ, José Luis  y  PEREZ ESPEJO, Rosario Haydee. Distribution of the Waters of the Rio Grande between Mexico and the United States in the Fort Quitman-Ciudad Juarez Area. Frontera norte [online]. 2010, vol.22, n.44, pp. 133-160. ISSN 0187-7372.

This article demonstrates some of the problems that arise in an economic analysis of the distribution of surface water when a river basin is shared by several countries. A case study is presented on the distribution of surface waters from the Rio Grande, which marks the border between Mexico and the United States, to determine whether there are non-cooperation strategies in relation to the Convention of 1906 for the Equitable Distribution of the waters of the Rio Grande for Irrigation Purposes. Water flows are analyzed by using a time series for observing cooperative behavior representing a Pareto optimal outcome.

Palabras llave : International water agreements; transboundary basins; common-pool resources; Convention of 1906; Mexico-US border.
