River basin organizations (RBOs)

Specialised organizations set up by political authorities, or in response to stakeholder demands. RBOs deal with the water resource management issues in a river basin, a lake basin, or across an important aquifer. The focus here is the basin organizations that are domestic, not transcending state boundaries.
