Abstract

However, water reallocation among users or from users to nature, is far from simple. initiatives portrayed as the solution to the water governance ?jigsaw? ? e.g. water trade, improved water use efficiency, users? collective action, public participation ? are not free of difficulties and shortcomings. the book explores the growing need for maintaining spain?s natural capital and the human component of water governance ? people?s needs, wishes, (vested) interests, aspirations ? that often determine the result of decisions and, sometimes, lead water management to a deadlock. this book takes a step forward in showing a more complex picture ? closer to reality ? of water governance in spain.
