Plans are being developed by the
parts to share the scarce water supply. External independent expertise is needed to judge the plans for sustainability, and analyse the system from a broader perspective. The aridity of the area makes it a valid “laboratory” to
analyse conflicts for water in contexts of water scarcity. Main impact compartments are the adverse effects on aquatic flora and fauna for increasing salinisation of water; the adverse effects to the tourism business for decreasing
quality of water; and the negative impacts on food production (agriculture) for increasing salinisation.
Key stakeholders identified are:
represented by the local Consortium of irrigators;
Provincial Tourism Agency;
Regional natural reserve;
Consortium of the Segura river basin.
