Subnational Hydropolitics

Conflict, Cooperation, and Institution-Building in Shared River Basins

Scott M. Moore

  • Offers the first book-length treatment of the distinctive problem of sub-national hydropolitics: why states and provinces, as well as countries, fight over shared water resources
  • Features a new theory of the factors that shape the dynamics of conflict and cooperation over water: decentralization, sectional identity, and political participation
  • Proposes solutions for how to improve international cooperation in shared river basins
  • Discusses the timely issue of climate change and how it will affect hydropolitics, especially in the Colorado and Yellow River Basins
