Summary

This paper draws on a study by the author of two agro-pastoral regions struggling to meet their water needs in semi-arid environments: Tana River District (Kenya) and Ambovombe District (Madagascar). The paper explores the institutional changes that have taken place with particular emphasis on the disengaging state, the lack of fiscal and administrative support throughout the decentralization processes, the community responses including local elite capture of certain local processes, and the subsequent rise of predatory (informal) private markets at the community level.
