Episode 26 – Nicolás Pineda Pablos: Water and Politics in Sonora’s Capital, Hermosillo

May 2023


Dr. Nicolás Pineda Pablos is a researcher in El Colegio de Sonora, Hermosillo. He has a doctorate in public policy and community planning from the University of Texas at Austin and wrote his dissertation on Mexican urban water policy. Since that time, he has continued to focus on water issues across Mexico, from the northern border states to the Yucatán Peninsula. Pineda is indeed one of Mexico’s foremost experts on urban water, with numerous publications, several of which are the result of long-term collaborations with researchers at the University of Arizona. In this interview, Dr. Pineda reflects on the current state of water in Sonora’s capital, Hermosillo, a desert city that, much like Tucson, is faced with profound challenges, not least of which are a swiftly warming and drying environment, ongoing drought, and the threat of ever-more more powerful storms.

Hosted by Jeff Banister; post-production and edition by Carlos Quintero.
