This paper will try to fill in a research gap by focusing on water management by system of government in OECD nations. System of government, according to Braun (2000), focuses on the question: is the power to act and the power to decide policy vested in a central government (unitary) or divested to local governments (federal) or somewhere in between? OECD nations were chosen because there was available data on them, although not all OECD nations were included in this study.
