Water Law and Policy examines water management in Europe, and the difficulties and policy dilemmas involved in creating integrated water management institutions. This is the only overall assessment of the development and evolution of European Water Law and Policy. The book is unique in that it concentrates on institutional development, norms and guiding principles, implementation strategies, and public participation mechanisms at the local level, EU level, and globally.

Water is one of the most mismanaged natural resources. Failed water management policies and fragmented water management institutions can have catastrophic results, including both flooding and water scarcity. Dr. Elli Louka's book provides insights that can guide water development policies across national borders. It is a must-read for policymakers, water managers, and students who need to understand national and transnational water management.

From the Inside Flap:

Against the backdrop of climate change underscored with flooding in Europe and droughts in Africa, Water Law and Policy analyzes the efforts of European Union to establish water policies that reflect the emerging international consensus that water should be managed from the perspective of water basins rather than political borders.
In doing so, Elli Louka breaks new ground in exploring the political and legal dilemmas of integrated water management.  While carefully plotting the use of water policy in national governance structures and international regimes, Louka also chronicles the European Union's efforts to establish a cohesive set of policies so that this essential resource is treated as a borderless global entity and not as a regional possession.
