Integrated River Basin Management - RMB Rivers   are   influenced   and   used   by   a   whole   range   of   stakeholders.   Keeping   the   water   in   (or   bringing   it   back into)   good   condition,   can   only   be   reached   by   cooperation   between   all   basin   stakeholders.   Thre   lies   the secret   of   river   basin   management.   As   most   stakeholders   are   in   favour   of   good   quality   water.   One   for   the need of good quality drinking water, others for agriculture, transp[ort food or for irrigation of agriculture. Water   is   not   something   we   have   in   major   supply.   Most   places   on   earth   there   is   severe   lack   of   water.   Water   is therefore a scarce common good which nis in need of governing. Governing   on   international,   bilateral,   national,   regional   and   local   level.   By   business,   ngo's,   water   users   and authorities. Together   the   cost   of   water   use   can   be   brought   down   and   the   quality   improved.   Planning,   monitoring   and communication are the central instruments.
