The interrelationships between water and energy in Latin America are diverse, complex and intense. Current trends suggest that this interdependence is subject to greater stress in the future, due to population growth and urbanization; economic growth; competition for water in watersheds with concentrated economic development; and trends toward increasing the intensity of water in energy production and energy intensity in the provision of water for different uses - all this in the context of climate change.
