Resilient Transboundary Water Management Institutions

This research aims to deliver a better understanding of the key features of resilient transboundary water management institutions. It unbundles the concept of institutional resilience into three inter-related components: stability, robustness and resilience. Stability refers to the ability of transboundary water management institutions to maintain stable performance under normal conditions. The term robustness is used to describe the capacity of institutional arrangements to maintain its desired level of performance against temporary external shocks. Finally, resilience describes the ability of institutional framework to withstand irreversible negative disruption by moving from one stable equilibrium state to another stable state equilibrium to absorb disturbances. The study demonstrates that resilient transboundary water management institutions must have the capacity to be stable under normal condition, robust against reversible negative shocks, and resilient to irreversible negative shifts.
