However, experience has shown problems with this approach in terms of the high costs and potential to exclude many people. Research on customary tenure (particularly in Africa) has also found that customary systems do not necessarily create tenure insecurity that limits investment (Bruce and Migot-Adholla, 1994). g. EU, 2004). Even de Soto, a well-known advocate of land titling and privatization programmes, argues that it is essential to understand the customary rules and social contracts (‘people’s law’) that are already in place before implementing any major reforms: Outside the West, extralegal social contracts prevail for a good reason: they have managed much better than formal law to build on the actual consensus between people about how their assets ought to be governed.

Yet, water rights reforms should strive to ensure that the basic principle is met: that water for basic livelihood needs will be available for all. Both restraint on use and investment in provision are required. Achieving this may require going beyond conventional measures of regulation or economic incentives, to also appeal to norms and values of sharing and caring for others, as well as for the earth.
