Résumé
Water is essential for the existence, development and preservation of all human life, making it an essential commodity in the world. Hence, this thesis aimed at analysing the pricing mechanism of water in Namibia, using a case study of NamWater. The study specifically looked at the water pricing mechanism being used by NamWater as well as the advantages and disadvantages of such a pricing mechanism. This study adopted a qualitative research method approach using a case study as the research design. The population consisted of all employees of NamWater and a sample of 35 staff members in the Finance Department was purposefully selected. Both secondary and primary data was used in the study ; data was collected using a self-administered open ended questionnaire and interviews. Thematic analysis was used to analyse and present the data using tables, graphs and pie charts. The study found out that NamWater uses the cost recovery pricing mechanism because of its advantages and due to the fact that it is a widely used pricing mechanism. Therefore, the study concluded that NamWater can continue using its current pricing mechanisms and try to factor in recommendations herein provided in the study.
