UNE GESTION COMMUNAUTAIRE DE LA RESSOURCE HYDRIQUE : L'IRRIGATION PAR TOURS D'EAU DANS UN VILLAGE DE L'ANTI-ATLAS (MAROC)

Abstract : This paper explores the individual and collective facets of anethnographic example of community water management in Morocco, with critical reference to E. Ostrom’s economic concept of ‘commons’ and Dardot and Laval’s political one of ‘common’. Self-managed, more than one hundred years old, and strictly related to the village’s patrilineal organization, this so-called traditional system encompasses different logics in practice. The technical side relies on a pooling of resources allowing the risk to be spread between all participants, while the oral enunciation of the right to water is used as a reminder, and as a support the patrilineal self-representation of the group, which includes strong power relations. Yet the practical use of irrigation water is particularly individual and reveals patterns of solidarity that are not strictly parental. This case is thus a good example of an institutional ‘commons’ type resource-management but at the same time of an activity and a discourse ‘in common’. Both of them having distinctive and complementary functions.
