Financing water for all : behind the border policy convergence in water management by Lyla Mehta( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
This paper tracks shifts in paradigms and practices around water financing historically to demonstrate how behind the border policy convergences have gradually emerged around key issues such as the diminishing role of the state in the provision of water services, shifts in public and private spending on water and an enhanced role for the private sector. It draws on examples from around the world to examine how policy and institutional changes have been systematically created through the influence of multilateral and bilateral donor initiatives and discusses their implications for poor people's access to water. It argues that there is often a gap between idealised notions of regulation and market 'efficiency' and the existing legal, administrative, socio-economic and political realities in the 'Third World' which can lead to the poor bearing the costs of changes in water financing. A review of specific initiatives around water financing (e.g. the Camdessus Panel) reveals that recent calls for additional financing in the water sector in order to achieve the Millennium Development Goals vary considerably from agency to agency and are deeply political in nature. Moreover, global debates around water financing have been top-down in nature and lack participation from southern governments, civil society and poor people. The paper concludes by making a case for invigorating systems for public financing in order to provide water and sanitation for all
Somewhere over the rainbow? : the politics and dilemmas of researching citizenship and marginality by Lyla Mehta( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 21 libraries worldwide
Research on development is normative, engaged and seeks to make a difference since it focuses on the excluded, on power relations and aims at the empowerment of the voiceless and increasingly on the pedagogy of the powerful. This makes it even more loaded and contested than other kinds of research. However, how aware and reflexive are researchers of their own biases and positionalities? Do final research accounts pay attention to questions concerning power and politics in the course of the research process? What are the dilemmas and contradictions encountered by researchers in both the North and South when they work with marginalised and powerless groups? This paper focuses on these issues by drawing on the experiences and testimonies of researchers involved in the Development Research Centre (DRC) on Citizenship, Participation and Accountability based at the Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex. By focusing on the methodologies and methods that DRC researchers drew on while researching questions of citizenship and marginality in India, Nigeria, Mexico and Brazil, the paper discusses the increasing distance between researchers and the research participants and the politics of researching citizenship and marginality. It also provides theoretical and personal insights on issues related to methods, ethics, positionality, reflexivity and power. The paper intersperses personal statements and reflections (presented in italics) with theoretical reflections to highlight the messiness and confusion embedded in the research process which rarely come to the fore in conventional research papers and reports. It demonstrates that development research that seeks to make a difference must rethink questions concerning policy influence, change at local and global levels and the politics of research given the interconnectedness between the problems in the South with policies and politics in the North. It urges us as researchers to ask critical questions, decide more forcefully how to engage with the powerful and take the sides of the weak while maintaining a pragmatism of hope
