Abstract

By reviewing related studies, published journal articles, research and government reports, this study explored the challenges in water governance, focused on the planning for integrated catchment management (ICM) and stormwater source control (SC) in Bangkok and its catchment. The review revealed implementation barriers, and eight categories of challenge: fragmented roles and responsibilities; technocratic bureaucracy; limitations of the regulatory framework; financial barriers; physical barriers; challenges of integrated knowledge; an uncoordinated institutional framework; and limited community and stakeholder involvement. The understanding of barriers to ICM planning and SC approaches is crucial for developing strategies that diminish barriers and increase the implementation of alternative solutions.
