dc.description.abstract This article addresses the centrality of groundwater access and the micropolitics of gender in relation to uses and users of groundwater, in both agriculture and the domestic sphere. It focuses on the everyday experiences of men and women, towards a better understanding of the gendered segmentation of agricultural labour, and how this relates to control over assets. Research indicates that groundwater usage in semi-arid regions has increased the short-term resilience of communities in the region, but has simultaneously increased gendered risks, especially for smallholders, by promoting unsustainable livelihood trends and risky coping strategies related to groundwater shortages. en
