Several Latin American countries have an economy strongly based on agricultural/livestock sector, where dependence on water plays a predominant role. This dependency is being observed in a cyclical way due to el Niño, la Niña, and climatic changes. Among the producers, those of small and medium-size, based mainly on family farming, are the ones that suffer the most from the consequences of water scarcity. [...]
