According to this book, water scarcity has increased globally, and it is expected to increase further because of climate change impacts. Water allocation plans and agreements have thus taken on increasing significance in resolving international, regional and local conflicts over access to water. This book considers approaches to dealing with these issues at the basin scale, particularly through the allocation of water among administrative regions. This book focuses on basin allocation planning and the granting of regional water shares; that is, the allocation of water from a common resource, typically a river shared by different administrative regions.
