Water resource management throughout the world is a very complicated issue, involving various aspects and dimensions and a well-coordinated set of policies. A well-designed water policy is a multi-faceted concerted intervention, which could be specific to just one set of political and physical socio-economic conditions. A framework to analyse the interaction between policy design and implementation can assist in improving both of these in various physical, economic and political situations. This book focuses on the interaction between policy making and strategic behaviour of policy makers, water users and other stakeholders, and how policy analysis and other analytical tools from the field of game theory and negotiation can improve policy design. The book presents analysis by high-level policy makers and policy analysts from various countries, to share experience regarding specific policy issues that are relevant to almost any country in the world, but may have been addressed differently in each country.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Dinar and Albiac have produced a volume of enormous importance. The contributors represent a wealth of experience in the 'water game', and they share with us the conceptual and empirical insights pertinent to the crafting of coherent water policy in various settings and circumstances.' Daniel W. Bromley, University of Wisconsin-Madison 'Dinar and Albiac have brought together an excellent set of papers using a game theoretic approach to analyse how policies affect the strategies of water users and managers around the world. This book will be valuable reading for seminars in economics, political science, sociology, policy and environmental science.' Elinor Ostrom, Co-Director, Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis, Indiana University
