This chapter concludes the book’s empirical analysis with a discussion of Uzbekistan’s position as Central Asia’s hydro-hegemon, explaining how this hegemony has been maintained over the years, and outlining the tactics put in place by the Uzbek government to impede the construction of the Rogun and Kambarata dams. The chapter posits that building, or hampering, the construction of these dams has become a matter of principle in Central Asia, and that the meanings of these projects go well beyond those attached to a simple hydraulic infrastructure.
