This article intends to analyze the behavior of sustainable development in Mexico's regions during the period between 2000-2005, considering that sustainable development articulates growth, social justice and ecological conservation. The analysis concludes that sustainable regional development in this country is deteriorating, with inequalities and increasing imbalances between economy, welfare and environment. In order to quantify this deterioration, the index of sustainable water development was used as an indicator.
