Poverty is a multidimensional phenomenon and one of its faces can be identified as the dimension of water poverty. The studies gathered in this book delve into the analysis of links between water and poverty, which go beyond simple access or lack of access to water, based on conventional hydraulic systems.
The authors took on the challenge of proposing new and purposeful approaches in the analysis of this dimension, writing about local management, norms and vernacular water systems; indigenous community organization; collective action in urban colonies; justice and water cultures; the maintenance, management and access to water sources, bans as forms of inequality and exclusion; the evaluation of public policies and, of course, alternative forms of measuring poverty in its water dimension.
