Hello, my name is Lisania!

I am from Tabasco, Mexico, and I am 16 years old.

Tell us what the water concern in your country is!

I am from a San Pedro Balancán, Tabasco, a rural town near the San Pedro River, in the border of Mexico and Guatemala. The river is of great cultural importance to the Mayan culture, connects a wide wetland network, and is a revenue source to local fishers. However, some of the many problems faced by these communities are the growth of aquatic weeds, which if uncontrolled, might harm fish and fisheries, and the shortage of commercial fertilizers.
