We work in partnership with economically-limited communities to build solid economies that achieve ecological stewardship, economic development, and social equity. 


Northern Guanajuato State, located in central Mexico, is a microcosm example of global inequality and the exploitation of natural resources to an unsustainable degree.  Learn about CATIS-Mexico's work in this region, and how this can have a global reach.

Water, Justice & Sustainability in Rural Guanajuato | Dylan Terrell | TEDxSanMigueldeAllende

Harvesting Water for the Future

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. The Independence Aquifer in central Mexico is in a permanent state of decline and contaminated with toxic levels of arsenic and fluoride, which has led to irreversible health complications like dental & crippling skeletal fluorosis in local communities.

Members of CEDESA, CATIS-Mexico, and local communities address water issues plaguing the northern part of Guanajuato state.  A team of students from Engineers Without Borders - University College of London chapter, helps improve these problems for local community schools through rainwater harvesting projects.
