Water Law and Policy

Elli Louka

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the centralization and decentralization challenges emerging from the water framework directive. For most member states of the EU, the mandate to manage water at the river basin involves an intricate balance between decentralization and centralization because some of the operational tasks delegated to local authorities would need to be coordinated better and some river basin planning would have to devolve to river basin institutions.

Keywords:   EU, water resource, water management, water policy, water framework directive, river basin management
