  Water scholars and practitioners generally agree that improving water governance is the key to addressing water insecurity in developing countries. We review the literature on water governance and argue for a second-generation research agenda, which pays more attention to the study of incentive structures, is multi and inter-disciplinary in orientation and with clear policy implications. Bio: Doug Kenney has been with the Natural Resources Law Center since He researches and writes extensively on several water-related issues, including law and policy reform, river basin and watershed-level planning, the design of institutional arrangements, water resource economics, and alternative strategies for solving complex resource issues. Integrated river basin management aims to break these barriers to establish a holistic framework for coordination, bringing together diverse regulatory, policy and planning. It involves all stakeholders involved in river basin planning and management collaboratively develop an agreed set of policies and strategies to achieve a balanced approach. In addition to developing the IAD literature on CPR management, these findings offer critical insights for assessing the capacity of interstate river basin compacts in the western United States to manage shared resources successfully, as well as insights for what types of institutional investments may be needed for enhanced resource governance.

Improving Water Quality in the Mississippi River Basin and Northern Gulf of Mexico offers strategic advice and priorities for addressing MRB and NGOM water quality management and improvements. Although there is considerable uncertainty as to whether national water quality goals can be fully realized without some fundamental changes to the CWA.   U nited S tates: Rio Grande Interstate River Compact. The Upper Rio Grande River Basin is subject to droughts and dry years that have the potential to spark intense conflict and/or promote adaptive responses. Drought exposed weaknesses in the governing arrangements and allowed for states to engage in opportunistic behavior that led to conflict.   The Daily Star, The Daily Samakal and Uttaran jointly organised an online discussion titled “Sustainable river basin management to solve the . institutional arrangements and policies at local, river basin, national and regional levels for management of water resources, especially for irrigation. He has lived and worked in Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Egypt, before moving to South Africa, and has done shorter-viii Contributors.

Institutional arrangements have been compared in three stretches under different management regimes, namely: (i) open access (River Ganges from Kanpur to Farakka); (ii) private contractor (River. In the intervening 20 years, the region has grown significantly. Institutional arrangements not anticipated, such as interstate banking, have been enacted. The Colorado River Interim Guidelines for Lower Basin Shortages and Coordinated Operations for Lake Powell and Lake Mead and the Interim Shortage Sharing Guidelines were adopted in Consistent with the recommended CWARP approach, changes are necessary to address the water resource issues of southwestern Pennsylvania at the following geographic scales: (1) river basins and interstate river basins and watersheds; (2) metropolitan region scale (multicounty areas); (3) metropolitan urban areas; and (4) rural areas.   The Upper Ping River, in a monsoon-dominated climate regime, passes through Chiang Mai, the biggest city in northern Thailand, and its sister city, Lamphoon. Extended periods of wet weather are followed by a long dry season; both flooding and water scarcity are issues in this river basin. Institutional water-management arrangements also vary.

A common denominator of institutional arrangements is determined, from which developing countries in particular could benefit with regard to the introduction and establishment of systems of integrated river basin management.

Sample competencies for effective functioning of river basin and sub-basin organisations are identified and described. Many developing countries are now experimenting with establishing new institutional arrangements for managing water at the river basin level.

This book, based on research by IWMI and others, reviews basin management in six developed and developing by: A common denominator of institutional arrangements is determined, from which developing countries in particular could benefit with regard to the introduction and establishment of systems of integrated river basin management.

Sample competencies for effective functioning of river basin and sub-basin organisations are identified and by:   Using a comparative case-study approach, the study examined river basins where organizations have been developed at the basin scale and where organizations perform management functions such as planning, allocation, and pricing of water supplies, flood prevention and response, and water quality monitoring and by: The authors describe and analyze water resources reform and decentralization of river basin management in the state of Ceara, Northeast Brazil, the poorest part of the country.

The Jaguaribe river basin is located entirely within the state of Ceara. With a drainage area of 72, square kilometers, it covers almost half of the state's territory. The EU Water Framework Directive introduces the principle of integrated river basin management, incorporating both the idea of spatial fit between ecosystems and social systems and a requirement to integrate water management across scales and sectors.

In designing their implementation setups, member states must therefore address both the roles of different institutional. Institutional arrangements for basin management need to internalise the political spaces of the Indian polity: the states and the panchayats.

This re-scaling process is more likely to shape the river basin as a space of engagement in which partial agreements can be iteratively renegotiated, and constitute a promising alternative to the current. Often ignored in institutional arrangements is that many other factors and processes originating in wider spheres have critical impacts on water use and management within the basin.

River basins are part of a national and transnational economy. Sectoral and market linkages have implications for basin agricultural production and water use. The unit of analysis is the interstate river basin “compact.” Interstate river basin compacts, which are provided for under the U.S.

Constitution, allow states to develop, adopt, and enter into agreements with one another for the purposes of allocating or managing interstate rivers. Most interstate river.

Integrated river basin management (IRBM) is an approach that has been interpreted in a number of different ways during the last years.

Current support for IRBM is based on a ‘myth’ of. The design attributes of interstate water allocation institutions include the geographical scale(s) of nested river basin governance arrangements (GS2), federal versus unitary type of governance regime (GS4), rule-making organizations, including the design and functions of river basin organizations (GS5), rules-in-use for multi-level river.

The alternative is an interdisciplinary paradigm that is 4,5,6,7 more synergy-based and socially, culturally and ecologically informed. 8 One such approach is Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM), which at the river basin scale is defined as Integrated River 9, 10 Basin Management (IRBM) or Integrated River Basin Governance.

Agreements and/or institutional arrangements that only pertain to the physical river. Single issue such as navigation, security, information sharing, and pollution control. There is no allocation of resources in these agreements.

Agreements and institutions that are. The geographic focus will include the transboundary portion of each river basin within the US – the interstate Colorado (shared by seven US states) and Rio Grande (shared by three US States).

Further, it will focus on adaptation at two discrete points along the spectrum of social organisation: behavioural change and interstate coordination.

the Colorado's unique institutional arrangements. The primary objective of this study is to determine if the governance and management of the Colorado could be improved by the establishment of an alternative form of regional water organization.

It is concluded that a type of federal-interstate compact commission, if carefully tailored to the. This chapter focuses on three related issues. The first section addresses the regulation of interstate river basins (an issue that is rapidly gaining importance) and interstate water dispute resolution.

It reproduces select instruments seeking to foster basin-level regulation and protection of water and reproduces the Inter-State Water Disputes Act,which remains one of the most visible. effective basin management set-ups is a coordinated model in which the efforts of a number of different entities are articulated (see Section ).

Institutional arrangements How water is used in a river basin is deter-mined by the interactions between water users, technology and water availability, and hence is a sociotechnical process. River managers and engineers should keep in mind several points: each river basin is unique; river management must benefit people in the basin; priorities of various users may be differ; a basinwide institutional framework must be implemented; concepts and ideas must be developed for total river basin management; water in all forms must be.

The study revealed that polycentric institutional arrangements under the Federal administration are likely capable of coordinating and integrating river basin management by extending the scope of an iterative learning through participation of.

Developed appropriate river basin management institutional arrangements in conjunction with provincial and district administrations Raised awareness among provincial and district administrations and community/farmer/NGO stakeholders of the implications and benefits of good water governance, good IWRM practices, and inter-agency collaboration.

However, fairly developed water governance on transboundary basins in the region still requires strengthening through enhancing riparian states’ institutional cooperation at all levels of interstate cooperation—regional level, transboundary river basins and bilateral level.

Handle: RePEc:wbk:wbrwps While there are some common themes and principles that have emerged, there is no universally applicable template or roadmap for river basin planning.

By nature, basin planning must reflect, consider and respond to the historical, physical, political, social, economic and institutional characteristics of the basin and country.

A River Basin Management Bill proposes to replace the River Boards Act It is unlikely that these institutional authorities will be effective without a consensus on the roles of the Centre and states (some of which have already resisted the move), and the operational domain of river basin authorities.

The report is a comprehensive study of a river basin. It is a prerequisite to the river basin planning. Tamil Nadu has 34 river basins, out of which it is grouped as 17 river basins. There are 16 river basins studies published by Institute for Water Studies, Government of Tamil Nadu.

Cauvery River Basin - A case of interstate dispute.the relevance of river basins in any allocation and management scheme. Part III examines alternative institutional arrangements for the allocation of water and reviews the case for river basins as an appropriate geo-graphical focus.

Part IV considers some river basin approaches in Eu-rope, Australia, and Canada, and Part V examines several.consensus among a river basin’s users, unless there are diplomatic, economic or other institutional precedents.

And the chances of mismanagement due to misunderstanding, mistrust or lack of information increase as a watershed crosses more administrative and conceptual boundaries.

The boundaries in question can be actual or conceptual spaces.
