community management and direction of basin microsubdivisions

Manejo can be either management or handling in the context of various resources, but in this case it seems to be management. Gestion in this sense means how the community directs zoning and use of resources. Microcuenca is the smallest subdivision of the basin resource management structure in the regulatory scheme of Mexican environmental regulations.
