A mixed-methods approach to assessing success in transitioning water management institutions: a case study of the Platte River Basin, Nebraska Ecology and Society
Hoffman Babbitt, Christina; School of Natural Resources, University of Nebraska-Lincoln; christinahoffmanm@gmail.com; Burbach, Mark; School of Natural Resources, University of Nebraska-Lincoln; mburbach1@unl.edu; Pennisi, Lisa; School of Natural Resources, University of Nebraska-Lincoln; lpennisi2@unl.edu.
To address increasing conflicts between surface water and groundwater users, the state of Nebraska has adopted a more localized and integrated approach in managing water resources. Integrated approaches offer promise in better managing connected water resources within the state; however, little review of the potential benefits and/or challenges of these actions has been conducted. This case study uses both qualitative and quantitative data collection efforts to take an in-depth look at how this new and innovative management system is working through the eyes of stakeholders living and working in the basin. Data collection reveals that overall the current water management system is working relatively well, even though it is still in its infancy. However,...

An integrated river basin planning approach – Nyando case study in Kenya OceanDocs
Njogu, A.K..
The river basin has long been acknowledged as the appropriate unit of analysis for water resources management and has also been named by the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED 1992) as the logical unit for integrated water resources management in Agenda 21, chapter 18. The comprehensive methodology framework for analysis structures the decision making process, starting with the problem identification, through the weighing of various options to the final selection of the most appropriate policy. The integrated planning approach methodology is applied to the 3600 km2 Nyando river basin in western Kenya, one of the sub-basins that drain into Lake Victoria in Eastern Africa. Statistical methods used to check the adequacy and...

From Premise to Practice: a Critical Assessment of Integrated Water Resources Management and Adaptive Management Approaches in the Water Sector Ecology and Society
Medema, Wietske; ;; McIntosh, Brian S; ;; Jeffrey, Paul J; ; p.j.jeffrey@cranfield.ac.uk.
The complexity of natural resource use processes and dynamics is now well accepted and described in theories ranging across the sciences from ecology to economics. Based upon these theories, management frameworks have been developed within the research community to cope with complexity and improve natural resource management outcomes. Two notable frameworks, Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) and Adaptive Management (AM) have been developed within the domain of water resource management over the past thirty or so years. Such frameworks provide testable statements about how best to organise knowledge production and use to facilitate the realisation of desirable outcomes including sustainable resource use. However evidence for the success of IWRM...

How does Diversity Matter? The Case of Brazilian River Basin Councils Ecology and Society
Bell, Andrew Reid; The Earth Institute at Columbia University; ab3477@columbia.edu; Engle, Nathan Lee; School of Natural Resources and Environment, University of Michigan; nengle@umich.edu; Lemos, Maria Carmen; School of Natural Resources and Environment, University of Michigan; lemos@umich.edu.
Diversity as a concept has often been perceived as a positive system attribute to pursue and protect. However, in some social settings, the way different kinds of diversity shape outcomes can vary significantly. Diversity of ideas and individuals sometimes can lead to disagreement and conflict, which in turn can lead to both positive and negative outcomes. In this study, we examine identity diversity, i.e., age, income, education, worldviews, etc., within the context of Brazilian water governance. We find that within the basins studied in this project, first, the more diversity in organizations and the sectors represented on the council, the more council members participate in council activities, perceive decision making to be democratic, and perceive...

Managing Change toward Adaptive Water Management through Social Learning Ecology and Society
Pahl-Wostl, Claudia; University of Osnabrueck; pahl@usf.uni-osnabrueck.de; Sendzimir, Jan; International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis; sendzim@iiasa.ac.at; Jeffrey, Paul; Cranfield University; p.j.jeffrey@cranfield.ac.uk; Aerts, Jeroen; Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam; jeroen.aerts@ivm.vu.nl; Berkamp, Ger; IUCN - The World Conservation Union; GJB@hq.iucn.org; Cross, Katharine; IUCN - The World Conservation Union; Katharine.Cross@iucn.org.
The management of water resources is currently undergoing a paradigm shift toward a more integrated and participatory management style. This paper highlights the need to fully take into account the complexity of the systems to be managed and to give more attention to uncertainties. Achieving this requires adaptive management approaches that can more generally be defined as systematic strategies for improving management policies and practices by learning from the outcomes of previous management actions. This paper describes how the principles of adaptive water management might improve the conceptual and methodological base for sustainable and integrated water management in an uncertain and complex world. Critical debate is structured around four questions:...

Promoting Health and Well-Being by Managing for Social–Ecological Resilience: the Potential of Integrating Ecohealth and Water Resources Management Approaches Ecology and Society
Bunch, Martin J; Faculty of Environmental Studies, York University; Network for Ecosystem Sustainability and Health; bunchmj@yorku.ca; Morrison, Karen E; Department of Population Medicine, Ontario Veterinary College, University of Guelph; Network for Ecosystem Sustainability and Health; karenm@uoguelph.ca; Parkes, Margot W; Health Sciences Program, University of Northern British Columbia; Network for Ecosystem Sustainability and Health; mwparkes@interchange.ubc.ca; Venema, Henry D; International Institute for Sustainable Development; Network for Ecosystem Sustainability and Health; hvenema@iisd.ca.
In coupled social–ecological systems, the same driving forces can result in combined social and environmental health inequities, hazards, and impacts. Policies that decrease social inequities and improve social cohesion, however, also have the potential to improve health outcomes and to minimize and offset the drivers of ecosystem change. Actions that address both biophysical and social environments have the potential to create a "double dividend" that improves human health, while also promoting sustainable development. One promising approach to managing the complex, reciprocal interactions among ecosystems, society, and health is the integration of the ecohealth approach (which holds that human health and well-being are both dependent on...

The global policy network behind integrated water resources management: is it an effective norm diffusor? Ecology and Society
Kramer, Annika; adelphi research; kramer@adelphi.de; Pahl-Wostl, Claudia; Institute of Environmental Systems Research, University of Osnabrueck; pahl@usf.uni-osnabrueck.de.
Integrated water resources management (IWRM) has been recognized by many actors as the appropriate approach to respond to challenges in water resources management in a sustainable way. The main players in developing and diffusing the IWRM concept have included expert groups, international organizations, and multistakeholder platforms, which cooperated in various activities promoting the IWRM concept, such as knowledge generation and sharing, capacity building, and monitoring. A loose network of these actors has actively shaped and engaged in a global discourse on sustainable water resources management and managed to authoritatively shape the IWRM concept. The processes behind the spread of the IWRM concept can thus be conceptualized as development and...
