To Cooperate or not to Cooperate...? discusses results of a research project to study the rehabilitation of 1500-year old water tunnels, so called "qanats", in Syria. Communities all over the world are using traditional technologies to extract drinkingwater, irrigate their lands and feed their livestock. But these often sustainable and ancient ways to make use of groundwater are in rapid decline worldwide. A research project started in 1999 to study the rehabilitation of 1500-year old water tunnels called "qanats"in Syria. To Cooperate or not to Cooperate...? discusses results and outcomes of this research project. The main objective of this research is to better understand the proces of collective maintenance of these ancient water tunnels. The study evaluates the social, cultural, political and environmental factors that have driven abandonment and decay of qanats in Syria. It tries to reconcile divers theoretical and conceptual frameworks to study collective action with a human ecosystem approach and develop one with a stronger anthropological reference.

From the Inside Flap:

De qanats in Syrië zijn in verval geraakt. Deze eeuwenoude watertunnels waren eeuwenlang een duurzame manier om drinkwater te producere. In dit boek bespreekt Joshka Wessels verschillende manieren waarop deze tunnels weer in ere hersteld kunnen worden.

Over de hele wereld wordt nog altijd gebruik gemaakt van traditionele technieken voor de productie van drinkwater, irrigatie en veevoer. Maar deze vaak duurzame manieren van omgaan met grondwater komen in gedrang. In 1999 startte een onderzoeksproject om het herstel van 1500 jaar oude watertunnels in Syrië (zogenaamde 'qanats') te onderzoeken. In 'To Cooperate or not to Cooperate...?' bespreekt Joshka Wessels de resultaten van dit project.
Het doel van dit onderzoek is om beter inzicht te krijgen in het proces van collectief onderhoud van deze eeuwenoude tunnels. Geëvalueerd worden de sociale, culturele, politieke en milieukundige factoren achter het verval van de qanats.
