Like any other natural resource, managing groundwater has as much to do with politics as it has to do with the science of hydrogeology. True as this statement is, it is seldom nuanced any further.

In this video, Frank van Steenbergen (MetaMeta) provides an overview of the research project 'CoCooN- Conflict and Cooperation over Natural Resources in Developing Countries,' carried out in Ethiopia, Yemen and the Palestinian Territories. An important lesson learnt was that the 'blackbox' of politics should not be seen as an impediment to avoid, but a dynamic that one needs to get into if any meaningful intervention has to be successfully implemented.
