MONTES DE OCA HERNANDEZ, Acela; CHAVEZ MEJIA, Cristina; GUIZAR VAZQUEZ, Francisco  y  VIZCARRA BORDI, Ivonne. Conflicto por el agua en el Sistema de Riego Tepetitlán después de la trasferencia. Región y sociedad [online]. 2012, vol.24, n.53, pp. 91-117. ISSN 1870-3925.

This article identifies and explains the conflict which emerged in the Tepetitlán irrigation system in the state of Mexico when the government transferred control of the irrigation districts to the consumers. The Tepetitlán irrigation system was part of Irrigation District 033 and managed by the government until 1993, at which point the government transferred management and infrastructure maintenance to the local community. The transfer from Irrigation District to Irrigation Unit-a topic which has hardly been studied in Mexico-is analyzed using conflict theory. We analyze the situations that cause conflict in local organizations. Based on this, we explain the present management situation of the irrigated land.

Palabras llave : conflict; irrigation district; irrigation unit; irrigation system; irrigator organizations; management.
