Description

Mexico City faces a continual battle for access to water: getting it, rationing it, transporting it, and consuming it with the utmost judgment and care. The Valley of Mexico is a complex water system in high demand - from the urban sprawl of the city to the farmlands that surround and supply it - and at the same time is facing unstoppable pollution. Among the complex water situation, can collective action provide an answer?
