Abstract [en]

This paper addresses Integrated River Basin Management as a solution to water stress through a comparative analysis of water management in Europe and China.It makes a preliminary assessment of the European experiences so far with the Water Framework Directive (WFD) – and the additional groundwater protection and flooding directives – on river basin management and investigates its potential value for other areas, focusing on China.Problems and possibilities of water policy transfer are investigated.The main questions to be discussed are whether the EU WFD could be made part of China’s water management regime and whether the experiences of the WFD could help China’s water managers and decision-makers to improve water management based on the principles of IRBM. We will deal with these and other questions, discussing the differences in water management and context between Europe and China.
