The Effectiveness of Alternative Water Governance Arrangements

Abstract : This chapter aims to provide some answers using both theoretical considerations as well as practical illustrations at the sub sectoral levels of urban water supply and irrigation as well as at the water sector as a whole. It examines different possibilities to deal with governance issues appropriately using several criteria, particularly feasibility, performance efficiency, transparency of the process, and accountability of decision makers. It also derives certain guidelines and principles that can be used to enhance the effectiveness of water governance in sub sectoral and the general water sector context.
