Multi-stakeholder Platforms for Integrated Water Management, Hardback Book

Multi-stakeholder Platforms for Integrated Water Management Hardback

Edited by Jeroen Warner

Part of the Routledge Studies in Environmental Policy and Practice series

Description

As they provide a negotiating space for a diversity of interests, Multi-Stakeholder Platforms (MSPs) are an increasingly popular mode of involving civil society in resource management decisions.

This book focuses on water management to take a positive, if critical, look at this phenomenon.

Illustrated by a wide geographical range of case studies from both developed and developing worlds, it recognizes that MSPs will neither automatically break down divides nor bring actors to the table on an equal footing, and argues that MSPs may in some cases do more harm than good. The volume then examines how MSPs can make a difference and how they might successfully co-opt the public, private and civil-society sectors.

The book highlights the particular difficulties of MSPs when dealing with integrated water management programmes, explaining how MSPs are most successful at a less complex and more local level.

It finally questions whether MSPs are - or can be - sustainable, and puts forward suggestions for improving their durability.
