This paper discusses some findings from research on politics and water management in Zambia. It argues for a more holistic approach in the analysis of various modes of resource appropriation based on the fieldwork. Water policy frameworks adopted in most developing countries emphasise the access to resources and the cost return or community participation. The emphasis is drawn from the consensus applying the Dublin Principles and the models promoted by the water project financiers, usually donors and International Financial Institutions.
