During recent years he has directed doctoral students in work with groups of communities in many parts of Mexico to examine projects designed to promote sustainable regional resource management. These projects are designed to promote local capacities for self-government and ecosystem management, as well as consolidating their ability to increase local production of basic necessities good for self-sufficiency while diversifying the productive base to generate new sources of income and employment. Among the areas in which these projects have functioned are: ecotourism, productive development of natural protected areas, forest rehabilitation, conservation and development, and waste water treatment plants for peri-urban communities. In each of these instances, the work is designed to generate new productive opportunities for communities; in the case of the last project, the objective is to develop an approach to environmental management that will make it financially attractive for communities to build aste water treatment facilities by generating new lines of production that can take advantage of the processed effluent.
