Already stressed, as industrial and urban development narrow their access to pastures and water for their animals, many pastoralists face a bleak choice: abandon their livestock and their cultural heritage or die.

The IBLI index is based on satellite data, which measure the quality of the pastureland every 10–16 days. These data are inputs to a statistical model of livestock mortality developed using historical data from the region.

    La recaudación de los derechos de agua y del impuesto predial son las fuentes de contribución más importantes en las finanzas municipales, pero la mayoría de municipios oaxaqueños se organizan por usos y costumbres y en esta forma de organización no se contempla el pago del agua y en general de otros servicios públicos.
