Based on his long-term anthropological fieldwork in the semiarid
northern of the Kunene region in Namibia, the author describes and analyses
how the local Otjiherero-speaking pastoralists govern water
usage after a decentralization reform of the rural water sector in
the country. This book will be of interest to academics, policymakers
and practitioners who seek to better understand how water
management institutions emerge, particularly at the intersection
of state decentralization reforms and local practices in the Kunene
Region, but also elsewhere in the world.

Diego Augusto Menestrey Schwieger works currently as a lecturer at the
