English abstract: A binational hydrogeological evaluation of four US-Mexico transboundary aquifers was recently completed, including the San Pedro River aquifer. A thorough and critical review of the final report indicates close cooperation, but little seems to have been achieved on many scientific, technical, legal and political aspects, which are essential for the comprehensive assessment of transboundary groundwater. This article provides a critical analysis of the scientific and political implications of the evaluation of the aquifer from an interdisciplinary approach (political geography and hydrogeology). It concludes that for the prevention of the conflict and the strengthening of the incipient hydrogeological evaluation schemes, it is necessary to strengthen the conceptualization and systemic vision of groundwater functions, monitoring and the homologation and exchange of data for the cross-border management of the aquifer.

Spanish abstract: Recientemente, se concluyó la evaluación hidrogeológica binacional de cuatro acuíferos transfronterizos Estados Unidos-México, entre ellos el Acuífero Río San Pedro. Una revisión exhaustiva y crítica del reporte final indica un trabajo de cooperación cercana, no obstante, parece haberse logrado poco con respecto a los aspectos científicos y políticos, ambos imprescindibles en la evaluación de los acuíferos transfronterizos. Este artículo provee, desde un enfoque interdisciplinario (Geografía Política e Hidrogeología), un análisis crítico de las implicaciones científicas y políticas de los resultados de la evaluación del acuífero. Se concluye que, para prevenir el conflicto y fortalecer la evaluación hidrogeológica, es necesario robustecer la conceptualización y visión sistémica del agua subterránea, su monitoreo y la homologación e intercambio de datos para el manejo transfronterizo del acuífero.

French abstract: L’évaluation hydrogéologique binationale de quatre aquifères transfrontaliers États-Unis et le Mexique, dont l’aquifère de la Rivière San Pedro, a été récemment effectuée. Le rapport final révèle un travail de coopération qui n’a cependant pas permis de déclencher des retombées scientifiques, techniques, légales et politiques, éléments essentiels pour l’évaluation des aquifères transfrontaliers. L’article propose, à partir d’une approche interdisciplinaire (géographie politique et hydrogéologie), une analyse critique des implications scientifiques et politiques découlant des résultats de l’évaluation de l’aquifère. Il conclut que pour la prévention du conflit et le renforcement de l’évaluation hydrogéologique, il est nécessaire de renforcer la conceptualisation systémique des eaux souterraines, leur surveillance, l’homologation et l’échange de données pour favoriser la prise de décision en la matière.

the regular surveillance of borders is a feasible strategy. However, there is a lack of organization and political will to carry out effective policies. This view was expressed by Yanomami informants as well as the Horonami organization. 24
