505 0 Introduction: Interest Groups, he Kunene River and Epupa's
Imperative -- The Kunene River's State-centric
Hydropolitical History -- The Transnational Role and
Involvement of Interest groups in the Epupa Debate --
Interest groups, Scalar Politics and Temporality.
520 This book investigates the role that interest groups have
played over the years in influencing the government of
Namibia, the World Bank, the European Union and project
implementation authorities to not construct the proposed
Epupa Hydroelectric Power Station on the Kunene River in
the Baynes mountains, a region on the border between
Namibia and Angola. Some of the issues brought forward by
the interest groups are the socio-economic impact the dam
would have on the OvaHimba, as well as negative
consequences for the river's aquatic and terrestrial
environment. This book argues that interest groups and
individuals have the ability to influence the above-
mentioned institutions, and to such an extent that water
politics and governance are not exclusively the domain of
state institutions. As such, it argues that communal
interest groups, living in remote parts of the world, can
influence state institutions at various political scales.
