Look at which institutions are responsible for water resources regulation, allocation, management and licensing
Who is responsible for water resources, infrastructure development and operations?
Who is responsible for water supply, sanitation and bulk water supply?
Who sets regulations relating to catchment functions such as the environment, mineral resources, land, agriculture, waste discharge, catchment rehabilitation etc?
Consider the time horizon over which institutions may adjust regulation
Consider major national developmental imperatives and the implications these may create for how water is regulated now and in the future
Look at opportunities to engage with regulators on good practice
