Water in Mexico city[Scenario] by Pablo Nomanza, Carole Desfossés, Julie Vinay Florent Gitiaux, Matthieu Mellul, Romain Lhez

The authors were part of the "Alternative Management" third year program in HEC Paris in 2006/2007

These three scenarios describe alternative but possibly cumulative paradigms for water distribution in Mexico City in 2040 from the standpoint of a major player in the sector, namely Veolia.

The first, Business as Usual (BAU), describes a universe where services are heterogeneous and where technology has resolved in part environmental and human issues.

second scenario, « Mad Max », describes a universe of unleashed deregulation, where the state has stepped back without securing a minimum public service. The outcome is an offer for water that is territorially fragmented and where access to environmental services is not the same for everyone. The market remains immune from self-regulation, the main distributors of environmental services no longer co-ordinate their activities with public institutions and have centred their offer on the wealthier segment of the population.

The third, called « Zen », describes a world where the civil society has managed to impose some kind of participatory democracy and to set up cooperation mechanisms based on local initiatives.
