Resumen

GARCIA GARCIA, Antonino  y  KAUFFER MICHEL, Edith F.. Transboundary Rivers Basins between Mexico, Guatemala and Belize: From Demarcation to General Issues. Frontera norte [online]. 2011, vol.23, n.45, pp. 131-161. ISSN 0187-7372.

In the south, Mexico borders on Guatemala and Belize. These three countries are linked by natural continuums called river basins. There are six river basins on Mexico's southern borderfour of which are divided among Mexico and Guatemala (Suchiate, Coatan, Grijalva and Candelaria) while the remaining two (Usumacinta and Hondo) are shared by Mexico, Guatemala and Belize. This paper presents the delimitation of the six transboundary river basins and the problematic issues that explain the lack of transboundary water policies in these territories, which are now essential.

Palabras llave : Border; river basins; problematic issues; public policies; Mexico.
