Toward the decade of 1970, the humid tropics represented in Mexico and in other parts of the world the most important agricultural frontier. The central problems that impeded their use referred on one hand, to the lack of hydraulic infrastructure and for another to the condition of marginality of the rural communities located in the region. The communication work was constituted as a formal component of the Program of Integrated Rural Development of the Humid Tropics, Proderith, whose axial line was the construction of infrastructure of road access to the communities; of control of the excesses of water in the agricultural parcels and of storage of the agricultural production. It looked to stimulate the reflection of the peasants on their conditions of life and of work with the purpose of finding solutions to their problems starting from their own knowledge and of the external contribution of the agricultural extension program and of hydraulic engineering. This article reviews this System of Rural Communication, the causes of its origin, development and extinction; also, we make some recommendations to replicate this experience.
