Abstract "This paper discusses how international donors can promote the development of transboundary water management. It assumes, first, that cooperation will take place whenever the major stakeholders consider cooperation to be a better option than non-cooperation. The perceptions and motivations of the stakeholders are therefore crucial. Secondly, this paper assumes that the major stakeholders are not 'states', but specific groups and individuals: individual politicians, sectoral government bureaucracies, regional and local governments, farmers, electricity companies, etc. Some of these may be involved in the international negotiations themselves, others may be needed to get international agreements ratified or implemented, and still others may be affected by transboundary water management but lack the means to exert any influence."
