About this book

Design and Impact of Water Treaties presents a unique way to utilize the existing literature to explain the success of treaties in managing hydrologic stress. Literature-derived core concepts are summarized as seven treaty mechanisms categories (specificity, uncertainty management, enforcement, communications, flexibility, integrativeness, and scale) and are hypothesized as important for shaping the institutional resiliency of a treaty. In Design and Impact of Water Treaties treaty design is shown to have a relevant and important role in shaping basin management so that nations may better achieve their goals in a changing climate.
