Water Governance’s Missing Link
McKenzie shows that governance regimes that emphasize human rights, water basin management, or the ecology of water not only lead to different governance solutions but affect the sustainability of this essential resource. He thus confirms Schlager’s insight that failure to account for environmental constraint contributes to the tragedy of exclusion associated with human-made governance regimes. Importantly, he identifies possible solutions for avoiding or prolonging the effects of absolute scarcity, most important among them, strategies for re-using water and politics that make these strategies palatable.
