|Toelichting (Engels)||This book has the following structure. Chapter 1 considers the term water governance in a more general sense, while the three-layer model of water governance is introduced and explained. This model is an extremely useful tool for assessing water governance. Chapters 2 to 6 then represent a further elaboration of the five building blocks listed above. Chapter 7 and 8 are totally new. Chapter 7 underlines the necessity of cooperation in water management and gives some valuable examples. Chapter 8 – as a case study - reviews the Awash River Basin in Ethiopia through the building blocks for good water governance. For each element, the Dutch situation is briefly described, not to serve as a blueprint for others, but merely to provide a clear point of departure.|
