The country of Mexico has volcanic activity and destructive earthquakes which occur in the central and southern parts of the country. Other natural hazards include tsunamis along the Pacific coast, and hurricanes on the Pacific, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean coasts.
Environmental issues for Mexico are numerous. Regarding the land, the issues include: deforestation; widespread erosion; the deterioration of agricultural lands; desertification. In addition, the land in the Valley of Mexico is sinking due to the depletion of groundwater. The country has rural to urban migration. This complicates the serious air and water pollution in the nation’s capital and urban centers along the United States-Mexico border. Raw sewage and industrial effluents are polluting the rivers in urban areas. In addition, the natural freshwater resources are scarce and polluted in the north. These resources are also of poor quality or inaccessible in the center and extreme southeast of Mexico. The country has a scarcity of hazardous waste disposal facilities. Note: The government considers the lack of clean water and deforestation national security issues.
