FAO Water Tenure Mondays - Bryan Bruns: “Water Tenure and Polycentric Problem-Solving”

Online - Italy, 20/09/2021 - 20/09/2021

Thinking about governance as polycentric problem-solving and institutional artisanship can contribute to understanding and improving water tenure. Polycentric institutions can offer practical alternatives for improving tenure in groundwater governance. Assessment and action concerning water tenure can learn from and build on the ways water users and other institutional artisans craft water tenure through polycentric problem-solving. 

Bryan Bruns works on water governance and cooperation. His consulting practice specializes in improving participation in irrigation and water resources management. He co-edited books on Negotiating Water Rights and Water Rights Reform: Lessons for Institutional Design. His articles and conference papers concern helping farmers organize water user associations, institutional analysis of water tenure, development of water commons, transforming social dilemmas into win-win cooperation, and practicing polycentric governance.
