Abstract
The starting point: a mixture of history and international developments Spain has a long and enlightened history of water resources management. In the late 19th century regenerationist politics and politicians saw the potential of harnessing Spanish rivers and transforming the semiarid rural landscape (Del Moral, chapter 9, and Arrojo chapter 19). To pull Spain out of poverty and illiteracy, there was no choice but to transform the country¿s barren hinterlands. Engineers, political leaders and lawyers were convinced that the development of ambitious water planning and works was a national objective that would have to be achieved by the efforts of the government.
