This book investigates the role interest groups have played over the years to influence the government of Namibia, the World Bank, the European Union and project implementation authorities not to construct the proposed Epupa Hydroelectric power station on the Kunene River in the Baynes mountains, a region on the border between Namibia and Angola. Some of the issues being agitated by the interest groups are the socio-economic impact the dam would have had on the OvaHimba as well as negative consequences on the river’s aquatic and terrestrial environment. This book argues that interest groups and individuals have the ability to influence the above-mentioned institutions and to such an extent that water politics and governance is not the domain of state institutions only. It therefore puts forward an argument that communal interest groups, living in remote parts of the world, can influence state institutions at various political scales.
