This issue of the WATERLAT-GOBACIT Network Working Papers is a product of the

Network’s Thematic Area 2, Water and Megaprojects (TA2). TA2’s membership includes

academics, students, practitioners, representatives of social movements and civil society

organizations, among others. It has a wide remit, as it covers broad areas related to the

social and environmental impacts of water-related infrastructures and operations, as

well as extractivist activities, including mining and agribusinesses, among other. TA2

members work on the effects of large-scale water infrastructures, such as dams, river

diversions, hydroways, etc., but they also look at the impacts of smaller infrastructures,

such as small hydropower plants. Given its broad focus, TA2 has important linkages with

most other Thematic Areas. In this issue, some of the articles also contribute to topics

covered by TA3, Urban Water Cycle and Essential Public Services, TA6, Hydrosocial

Basins, Territories, and Spaces, and TA9, Water and Production.

Several of the five articles featured in the issue were originally presented and

discussed at workshops organized by TA2 in two of the Network’s International Meetings,

the IX International Meeting, Water, rights, and utopias: priorities in the process of

democratization of water politics, Joao Pessoa, Paraiba, Brazil, 3-7 September 2018,

and the X International Meeting, Struggles over Water: Intersections of Class, Gender

and Ethnicity, Concepcion, Bio Bio, Chile, 7-11 October 2019.
