Architecture – Institutions and Organisations
Institutions:  rules of the game
  • Principles, policies, regulations, legislations and social norms etc
Organisations: players or actors
  • Government departments (national, provincial, local), NGOs, CBOs, civil society etc
  • Co-ordination
  • Overlap
  • Divergence
  • Mismatches
  • Implementation
Question: How can the two global conventions help reduce these challenges for transboundary water management?
