Abstract

In the absence of a comprehensive national water policy, today's decision making around water resources has come to be characterized by a pragmatic, problem-solving approach, with heightened attention to processes and cooperation. Increasing, water policy today is highlighted by a pragmatism that emphasizes restoration efforts, collaborative institutional arrangements, and adaptive management philosophies.
