Abstract

This study will develop a framework to understand basin plan development as a collective decision making process. It advocates for the use of negotiation and conflict analysis tools to deliberately facilitate such processes. An overview of available tools based on game theory and complexity science will be provided. Using the case study of the basin plan development in Morocco, the underlying conflicts will be illustrated based on an application of the Graph Model for Conflict Analysis.
