Abstract
SS19 Levelling players and context: Re-examining policy for transboundary water allocation and governance
 
Levelling players and context: Re-examining policy for transboundary water allocation and governance. While the importance of transboundary water cooperation is touted in both academic and policy literature, the challenge of putting into practice actual measures for ensuring equity remains. The roundtable discussion of this session will draw on cutting-edge thinking and policy practices that attempt to address issues of power, institutional design and capacity of actors. The session aims to develop interdisciplinary insights on both the outcomes and processes of transboundary water governance. This session is part of a two-part special session and is preceded by 'Questioning Water Governance: From concepts to practice', which presents a critique on water governance mechanisms not suited to context.
