Chapter 11: Allocating powers and functions in a federal design: the experience of South Africa
Managing Water in Multi-Layered Political Systems
Restricted access

This chapter reports on the case of South Africa where, by virtue of major political reform occurring more or less contemporaneously with the need for a fundamental review of water resource management, a systematic process of institutional design for water management was undertaken. The chapter provides the background, describes both the political and the technical processes that were undertaken and how they interfaced, considers the initial design of the system that was introduced and reflects on progress with its establishment and the outcomes derived from it.
