This document is meant to present a framework for analyzing the institutions related to water management in a river basin context. The design of the five-country regional study undertaken by IWMI on ?Development of Effective Water Management Institutions? provided a new methodology and a framework for river basin studies. It consists of four key components of diagnostic investigations related to water resources management in a river basin, which are interrelated. These key components are the physical system, water accounting, socioeconomic situation and performance. This study design is given in the Study?s Inception Report of 15 June 1999, and the Methodological Guidelines of 1 October 1999. This document takes one step further, and provides a conceptual framework for analyzing the institutional framework for water resources management in a river basin. The major thrust of this framework for institutional analysis is that the four key areas of diagnostic studies in a river basin are shown to be closely linked to the institutional frame work for integrated water resources management in the context of a river basin.
