  • Examines water sharing disputes between countries, provinces/states and even local bodies
  • Discusses ways on how to avoid conflicts by co-managing this increasingly scarce resource
  • Includes case studies from geographically diverse areas: North and South America, Europe, Africa and Asia


Co-management is a highly dynamic, evolving, adaptive, and forward looking process. This edited volume covers theoretical background and includes supporting lessons learnt from field experiences. The book has case studies from both North and South America (co-management of fisheries, resilience in near-shore waters of the Great Lakes basin, water level management in Lake Ontario, and case studies from Chile and Brazil), Europe (Tisza river, coastal management and examples of rivers from the Netherlands and from Uzbekistan), Africa (Lake Victoria) and Asia (Pushkar Lake in India).
