Abstract: The Negotiated Approach (NA) refers to the efforts of civil society organizations (CSOs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to involve local groups in integrated water resources management (IWRM). These efforts promote negotiations as processes in which participants are able to reach an understanding of and resolve problems based on their shared common interests, rather than as bargaining processes in which individual participants defend their own positions and interests. This book provides the keys to the Negotiated Approach. It spells out the vision, principles and distinguishing features of the approach, and describes frameworks for negotiations and strategic management. It also aims to show that the Negotiated Approach is not only a concept and set of principles,but a tangible way forward once participants are willing to become involved in its application and accept the challenging paradigm shift in thinking that it invites.
