Description: The Sonora River watershed is located in the central part of the state of Sonora,Mexico, and is one of the most important watersheds in the region. Much of the state's economy depends on the natural resources, products, and productive activities developed in this watershed. Many natural areas along the river and its tributaries have been converted to a large variety of agroforestry systems, providing the inhabitants of the region with food, timber, medicines, economic inputs from agricultural crops, forage for livestock, and services like recreation. Land tenure forms are private and communal properties. Private owners use more advanced technology being dedicated to more extensive and intensive exploitation activities. Communal producers usually rent their lands or get little income from their land use activities.

Keywords: land stewardship, watershed management, ecosystem-based management, natural resources, conservation, sustainable development, sustainable use
