Summary/Abstract "This volume examines the experiences in many watercourses around the world, lessons learned and areas for further development. Drawing upon papers presented at a symposium on "Improving Public Participation and Governance in International Watershed Management" co-sponsored by the Environmental Law Institute, United Nations University, and other institutions, the chapters identify innovative approaches, as well as some of the considerations - linguistic, political, legal, traditional and cultural, geographic and institutional - that should be considered when extending and adapting the approaches to other watersheds."--BOOK JACKET
Note "Many of the chapters in this volume were first delivered at a symposium on 'Improving public participation and governance in international watershed management,' held on 18-19 April 2003 in Charlottesville, Virginia."
