Blog: El derecho al agua y el extractivismo en Centroamérica

El derecho al agua es, sin duda uno de los puntos nodales alrededor del cual se centran las disputas y conflictos en relación a los impactos del extractivismo, entendido éste no sólo como las industrias extractivas de petróleo gas y minería sino también lo conocido como el “agro-negocio”.
