This report attempts to give a conceptual understanding of what the mirab system entails and how it could be studied systematically. It also exposes the dynamics of social water management practices over time through a case study of one canal in Baghlan province in the Kunduz River Basin: the Jangharoq canal. Last, the report concludes on the lessons learnt and provides some recommendations for improving local water management institutions, in a context where institutional reforms call for WUA formation.
