The OECD Water Governance Principles in Flood Risk Management

Understanding Conflicts and Frictions in Dutch Flood Protection

Nadine Keller, Barbara Tempels, and Thomas Hartmann

The OECD Water Governance Principles provide a guideline for good water governance. However, these principles can conflict with each other when applied in practice. This contribution aims to understand which dilemmas arise and how such conflicts play out. It is explored in an in-depth case study on Dutch flood risk management in which conflicts between the principles emerge when applied to flood risk management practice. Interviews with water managers were used to collect data on which principles contradict each other and how these conflicts work out in practice. The study reveals that although the principles seem obvious, some principles indeed clash when applying them, while others do not lead to conflicts. Principles on efficiency, trust, and engagement have high potential for conflicts.

English abstract: This article explores the apparent paradox of the simultaneity of conflicts and cooperation in transboundary rivers basins in Central America and Southern Mexico. It documents diverse relationships among a plurality of local and national actors as well as reciprocal influences within decision-making processes in the context of events that have taken place in the Lempa and Usumacinta watersheds since 2010. A key point of this reflection is the passage from separate views of conflict and cooperation to the redefinition of a non-linear continuum based on different experiences in the field.

Spanish abstract: Este artículo explora la aparente paradoja entre la simultaneidad de los conflictos y la cooperación en las cuencas transfronterizas de América Central y del sur de México, para acciones posteriores al año 2010 a partir de los casos de los Ríos Lempa y Usumacinta. El texto documenta las diversas relaciones existentes entre una pluralidad de actores locales y nacionales, así como la presencia de influencias recíprocas dentro de los procesos de toma de decisiones. Uno de los elementos más importantes que permite esta reflexión es el tránsito de una visión separada sobre los conflictos y la cooperación a la redefinición de un continuum no linear fundamentado en las diversas experiencias de campo.
