Abstract

With Integrated Water Resources Management a new water management paradigm arose. Since the 1990s, most of the countries worldwide have started to establish enabling environments and defined new institutional roles in order to manage their water resources in a cross-sectoral, multi-stakeholder and integrated way. This development has often occurred at the national level, but remained without subsequent implementation at the regional or local level in the form of water resources management at the river basin level. Problems of implementation at the river basin level are related to the identification of a suitable management scale and an actual cross-sectoral stakeholder involvement. Conventional attempts have tried to solve these problems independently without paying attention to specific motivations of involved actors. The use of management instruments more flexible to specific implementation contexts has only a recent record.
