Research Aim
:

To propose a strategic framework for understanding how Integrated
Water Basin Management is practising, through the
case study
of
Mountain
-
River
-
Lake (MRL) Program of Jiangxi Province of China.


Research Objectives:


Field experimental practices
-

policy making


(bottom
-
up, top
-
down)



Stakeholders interaction in multi
-
level governance regimes


(sectoral interaction, interdisciplinary interaction)



Public participation


(farmers’ self
-
help group development, NGO involvement)


Basic concept


Adaptive governance


complexity, uncertainty; polycentric
governance style, participatory approach



Social learning


bridging organization, stakeholder interaction,
collective action and collaboration

To manage the lake, the rivers must
be harnessed; to harness the
rivers, the mountains should be
protected; to protect the
mountains, the poverty of the
community should be alleviated.’


‘Based on ecology while keep
