Description

Two Centuries of Experience in Water Resources Management: A Dutch-U.S. Retrospective tells a trans-Atlantic story. Its chief protagonists are two established and respected federal water resources organizations—the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the Dutch Rijkswaterstaat. Founded more than 200 years ago, both organizations have a complex institutional history.

These histories are geographically and culturally specific, but overlap in substantively important ways. Although the United States and the Netherlands maintain a long tradition of political, economic, and technical cooperation, only recently have these institutions formally engaged one another in meaningful forms of direct and collaborative interaction.
