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.
