Drawing upon a worldwide survey of river basin organizations and in-depth studies of eight river basins in a variety of locations around the globe, this book examines how institutional arrangements for managing water resources at the river-basin level have been designed and implemented, what the impetus for these arrangements has been, and what institutional features appear to be associated with greater or lesser success in river basin management.
From the reviews: "This 12-chapter book provide an overview, a summary of the comparative analysis of eight case studies, and a summary of determinants of decentralized water management. ! The book is edited and in part written by three recognized experts in institutional development and water management. ! the book and underlying analytical framework are comprehensive and a must read for those interested in understanding the dynamics of decentralization, increased participation, and role of integration in progressive, modern water management."(Matthew D. Davis, Eos, Vol. 89 (48), November, 2008)
