(Proposed) thesis title: Post-Conflict Reconstruction in Lusophone Africa: “Water, water everywhere” and maybe a “drop to drink”
Thesis description: The research project addresses the topic of water governance in Africa, focusing on the systems of water supply and sanitation implemented within the Southern region. Access to water and sanitation is one of the major challenges facing human race in the 21st century, particularly in Southern Africa, one of the world’s worst affected areas. Having chronically suffered from water stress, this region’s countries are now more than ever compelled to improve their water governance levels in order to attain the acceptable human requirements defined by the international community. Following the success of my thesis on the ‘Right to Water in Angola’, the research will now focus on analysing the consequences of the complex dynamics (social, political, technological and economical) involved in determining water policies in the country’s both urban and rural areas. The South African case will be used as a comparator, since it is considered to be at the forefront of this thematic.
