Entrepreneurs, investors and the state: the public and the private in sub-Saharan African irrigation development
Third World Quarterly
This article draws on ethnographic research in Tanzania to interrogate the discourse of 'public' and 'private' in sub-Saharan irrigation development. It contrasts the complexity of social and political relations with narratives suggesting that 'private' is necessarily opposed and superior to 'public' . We argue that support for models of private-sector development obscures access to and control over resources and can result in the dispossession of those least able to resist this.
