LINK TO OPEN ACCESS

Water has always been a crucial catalyst for human development. In Africa, competition among different sectors for this scarce resource remains a critcial challenge to water managers and decision-makers.

Water and Development examines a range of issues, from governance to solar distillation, from gender to water pumps, using a range of research methods, from participant observation to GIS and SPSS data analysis. Throughout, however, there is the unifying thread of developing a participatory and sustainable approach to water which recognises it as an essential public necessity.

Edited by Ronaldo Munck, Narathius Asingwire, Honor Fagan and Consolata Kabonesa, the result is essential reading both for students of development and the environment and for NGOs and policy-makers seeking a robust and transformational approach to water and development.
