TORRE VALDEZ, Hugo César De La  and  MORENO VAZQUEZ, José Luis. Resilience of the Socio-Ecological System in the sub-basin region of the Sonora River. Estud. soc. Rev. aliment. contemp. desarro. reg. [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.53, e19698. ISSN 2395-9169.


Identify how the Socio-Ecological System (SES) of the Sonora River sub-basin responds to different territorial expressions that mark each of the exploitation regimes based on three perspectives: ecological scale, scope of conservation policies and social context.


Description of the context; identification of territorial dynamics through a Geographic Information System in a period of 40 years through the geometric superimposition of vector information technique.


Territorial interrelation between different production links of SSE, hydrological alteration, successive increase of land uses and vegetation changes; there is a limited scope of ecological regulation policies; as well as decreasing demographic trend in rural areas and significant levels of marginalization.


The margin of error of the official cartographic inputs is assumed.


The different disturbances due to land use, the limited ecological regulation and the demographic context of SES generate a cyclical and reduced resilience, where adaptive changes have resulted in a prolongation of the same in / sustainability of the sub-basin through time.

Keywords : regional development; Socio-Ecological Systems; resilience; sub-basin baja Sonora river; changes in land use; territory.
