A theoretical framework for understanding benefit sharing arrangements with particular reference to the water sector
Expanded Title:The researchers have also used the concept of benefit sharing loosely without understanding the complete and broad meaning of the concept, hence implications. In many cases the resources is surrounded by various users, with specific and varied needs. More often than not, these beneficiaries (national/or transboundary) do not concern themselves about their impact on the next beneficiary or downstream user. It is critical that users identify themselves with the resource, the sense of ownership/sharing. The assumption here is that that a collective identity of resource user groups provides an effective basis for collective action. Often this leads into a process of negotiations and complexities, considering trade-offs and associated risks in an attempt to constructing the ownership, or sense of identity, which should result in the collective identity. Thus, collective identity serves important psychological functions for members of a user group. The key deliverable of this study was the production of easy to follow interactive theoretical social-ecological system’s framework (SES). The core principle of SES is willingness to participate created through collective identity that would in turn strengthen the capacity for collective action”
