This paper investigates factors that hamper stakeholders’ involvement in the management of large confined aquifer systems. We illustrate how participatory scenario analysis can be used to trigger collective action. Engaging stakeholders in futures thinking at the beginning of the participatory process is a powerful approach to generating a commitment for collective action on groundwater.

This book compiles an international account of water allocation policies supporting a transition to sustainable water use in regions where agriculture is the dominant water use. It covers 13 national, state and transboundary case studies of water allocation policy, covering cases from Europe, the Americas, Central Asia, the Middle East and the Pacific region.

This presentation was made for the ENGEES conference on “Nature-based solutions and water-related risks: Insights from humanities and social sciences ?”, which took place in Strasbourg (France) on 5-7/06/2024. The presentation gives an overview of the work done on the Seudre case study (France) with local partners to discuss the implementation of 3 Nature-based Solutions (NbS) and their quantitative impacts on the river and its aquifer. In addition to evaluating the NbS’ impacts, the perceptions of participants on the subject were monitored throughout their involvement in a series of workshops
