Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This study presents a unique way to utilize the existing literature to explain the success of treaties in managing hydrologic stress. Literature-derived core concepts are summarized as seven treaty mechanisms categories (specificity, uncertainty management, enforcement, communications, flexibility, integrativeness, and scale) and are hypothesized as important for shaping the institutional resiliency of a treaty. Treaty design is shown to have a relevant and important role in shaping basin management so that nations may better achieve their goals in a changing climate.

Synopsis:

This book presents a unique method for utilizing existing literature to explain the success of treaties in managing hydrologic stress, and shows how treaty design can shape basin management, helping nations to better achieve their goals in a changing climate.
