Values in water management

Abstract. Values, defined as principles or standards of behaviour, are crucial for understanding how individuals, groups, organisations and whole societies interact with their water systems. Values can be used to judge and justify actions (ideal values) and they can be enacted in practice and embodied in water laws and water infrastructure (actual values). Moreover, they can be individual or social. Depending on the type of value, different measurement methods can be used. For research into the co-evolution of human and water systems, discourse analysis of cultural texts such as newspaper articles is a good method since such texts are often available for longer periods. For comparative research, data from the World Values Survey or the European Social Survey may be used. To achieve progress, future socio-hydrological research should take as its starting point the main social groups and organisations in the area of concern and study 1) how these have evolved, 2) how their interactions with each other and with their physical environment have evolved, and 3) how they influence and are influenced by the prevalent social values and management institutions.

Short summary
Values are crucial for understanding how individuals, groups, organisations and societies interact with their water systems. This paper discusses the different types of values, their origin, and how they can be measured. The paper argues in favour of intermediate level socio-hydrological research that starts from social groups and organisations and studies how these influence and are influenced by their physical environment and by the prevalent social values and management institutions.
