(p.111) Chapter 7 Designing Effective Organizations
Water Law and Policy

Elli Louka

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the issue of institutional effectiveness within the context of the water framework directive (WFD). The WFD prescribes that a river basin district must be managed by a competent authority. Certain states have interpreted this provision as a requirement to establish river basin districts that would be governed by river basin institutions. Other countries have adopted more of a coordinating outlook to implementation, according to which multiple national, regional, and local authorities are to work together to prepare a river basin management plan. The preoccupation of both new and existing institutions of river basin management is how to ensure a high degree of effectiveness in water management.
