Abstract: "We examine a set of Community Water Projects (CWPs) among four different river basin Water Resource Users Associations (WRUAs) in Kenya where management committees play a central role in water allocation and management. The research involved 95 community water project managers from 20 different CWPs management committees and investigated the internal dynamics of group decision making that are effectively in place. Specifically our research studied the level of coherence between individual decision preferences and group decisions, as well as the factors that influence the final decisions as a result of small group decision making internal dynamics."
