Géopolitique de l'eau dans l'Espagne des autonomies: : Enjeux et rivalités de pouvoirs dans la Région de Murcie

Abstract : The Region of Murcia is subjected to intensive irrigation agriculture and a growing urban consumption. The existence of an interbasin water transfer between the Tagus and the Segura partly avoids the structural deficit in this territory. However, the decentralization process undergoes in Spain has contributed to increase the number of water conflicts between different regions in recent years. The will of the government of Castilla La Mancha to stop water transfers and the derogation of the transfer project Ebro-Segura by the Socialist Party in 2005 has entailed a high politicization of water issues that confronts the two main political parties and different concerned territories. In this context of power relations between different actors and challenges, new political changes are taking place place after the regional and legislative elections in 2011.This new political framework shows that water problems in Spain aren't only the outcome of scarcity but a geopolitical situation.
