Two Ways of Reasoning, One Outcome: The World Bank's Evolving Philosophy in Establishing a "Sustainable Water Resources Management" Policy
AbstractThis article discusses the evolution of water resources management and policies since the early 1990s. Changes are due, in particular, to two international conferences both held in 1992 (Rio and Dublin), which laid the groundwork for an integrated approach to water management. Reformers concentrated on creating a coherent policy that would take into account environmental concerns. This paper focuses on the World Bank as one of the most important actors in the formulation and financing of water policies. Indeed, the World Bank has developed, as a result of these conferences, a new policy that regroups different water projects into one single concept: water resources management. It turns out, however, that water resources management in essence just means water privatization. Copyright (c) 2001 Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
