Thinking the waters with rural communities in Colombia and Mexico: some reflections for community water diagnosing (in Spanish)

Hillon, Yulieth

In this article I present some key elements to address the topic of rural community water worlds. Although the theoretical basis of the work is centered on the study of “the commons”, the reflections and lessons presented come from a dialogue of knowledge with the Indigenous Community of Carpinteros, State of Michoacán, Mexico, and several local communities near the Sonsón Moor, in the Department of Antioquia, Colombia. The points I highlight touch on facets of the waters and their people relating to the ontological, the symbolic, the epistemological, the relational, and the political. I argue that a better understanding of how these aspects manifest themselves in community-water relations will contribute to the formulation of community strategies and practices that help protect the human-non-human links created and maintained in the community.
