About this book

The control and governance of water is one of the critical issues of the 21st century. This authoritative volume shows that, in recent years, water policies, institutions and governance have shifted from technical, quantitative, supply-driven, centrally controlled management to more demand-sensitive, qualitative, decentralized, participatory, integrated approaches. The book examines these issues through case studies at national, river basin and local levels, using accessible multidisciplinary approaches that integrate economics, institutional analysis, geography and policy analysis. Ultimately, the book untangles and presents best practices for policy- and decision-makers, governments and regulators, NGOs and user groups, farmers, water supply companies and researchers, as well as pointing towards how good water governance structures can be developed and implemented for the benefit of all.

Media reviews
'This book eloquently demonstrates the various tasks institutions have in improving water management, by taking a wider definition of what institutions may consist of. Having multi-sectoral and international case analyses, the book appeals to a wide range of readership. In particular, introducing several approaches to be considered by readers makes the book much more handy to those who are interested in the topics and their implementation.' Ariel Dinar, Agriculture and Rural Development Dept, World Bank 'This authoritative volume shows that, in recent years, water policies, institutions and governance have shifted from technical, quantitative, supply-driven, centrally controlled management to more demand-sensitive, qualitative, decentralized, participatory, integrated approaches.'
