Abstract

MANZANO ITURRA, Karen Isabel  and  JIMENEZ CABRERA, Diego Ignacio. THE FRESH WATER OF THE ANDEAN HIGHLANDS AND ITS ROLE IN THE 1950 CHILEAN-BOLIVIAN CONVERSATIONS. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2020, n.61, pp.55-66. ISSN 0719-2681.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812020000100055.

In the government of Gabriel Gonzalez Videla, the industrial development was a central economic policy objective at import-sub stitution industrialization strategy. Thus, the Chilean government sought to make a megaproject at the Norte Grande by the blueprints of the engineer Luis Lagarrigue (1922), in which he proposed to utilise Titicaca Lake fresh water reserves by its channelling towards Chile. That episode gave way to the 1950 Chilean-Bolivian Talks whereby Bolivia searched for an access to the sea. Simultaneously, Chile bestowed a corridor in exchange for Titicaca fresh waters. Then, we study this research problem through the theory of geopolitics of water by a qualitative methodology (primary, secondary, and tertiary sources), especially to comprehend the development potential of the rivalry over resources among Chile, Bolivia, and Peru.

Keywords : Water geopolitics; talks of 1950; foreign policy; Bolivia; Chile.
