NeWater - Institution-Based Water Regime Analysis Orange-Senqu Basin.
This report takes a closer look at the emerging governance structures in the Orange-Senqu River Basin in Southern Africa. It provides for an in-depth analysis of the past processes that lead up to the creation of a river basin commission as well as the inherent obstacles but also opportunities for adaptive water resources management in future. Particular focus is placed on the emerging participative structures at the international level and the role of donor organisations in shaping the institutional structures for transboundary water management in the region. Based on this description, the report poses the question of which might be promising entry points for further efforts, as well as commendable avenues to follow, with view to increasing the adaptive capacity of this important river system; it also asks where major challenges might be encountered due to limitations encountered in the Southern African governance environment.
