Abstract: "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."
