Description

Effective sustainable management of a transboundary watershed system requires coordinated actions among governments. This inter-state approach is important, yet inadequate. Policies and management plans developed by formal inter-state processes eventually rely on the implementation at local sites; hence community-based actions are critical to the effectiveness of policies. In transboundary watershed management, there exist a gap in the policy-making at the regional level, and implementation at the local level. Sulan Chen advocates integrating community-based actions in watershed management, and cites the recent development in the Nile River to demonstrate this approach.
