Koppen (2002), Catchment management agencies for poverty eradication

By Barbara Schreiner and Barbara Van Koppen


This paper discusses the changes in the water law under the new dispensation in South Africa from a poverty perspective. The focus is on the early experiences of implementation of one of the components of the National Water Act: establishing Catchment Management Agencies. From the diversity of experiences in decentralizing integrated water management, key areas emerge where steering by the government is crucial to establish pro-poor, developmental Catchment Management Agencies. Keywords: poverty, water, integrated water resources management, catchment managemen
