The Ebro basin: An example of the evolution of polycentric governance arrangements (Global Water Forum)

The Ebro river (85 362 km2 or 17% of Spain) is located in the north-east of Spain and provides an interesting example of the evolution of competences and strategies to manage water in a changing institutional context. The Ebro river crosses nine autonomous regions and is managed by the Spanish government through the Ebro River Basin Authority (RBA).
Its evolution during the past century shows that polycentric governance arrangements in federal rivers (or quasi-federal, as it is the case of Spain) are not static and instead have adapted by renegotiating the balance of devolved decision-making and federal coordination
