Critical Commentary

This blog post by Lesley Green was initiated in response to an email from a journalist who asked for comment on the Cape water crisis. His email was titled "Will Cape Town survive the deadliest water crisis?." Green responds that this is not “the deadliest” water crisis and that the city can survive it if the narrative is a productive one. She argues that the key is to move from “command and control" approaches to implementing expertise to an ethics of care, of relationships – "because relationships and collective action are the only way we can do this."
