The administrative and institutionul provisions of a transboundary water sharing agreement are critical to successful achievement of the agreement's objectives. In the United States several models of institutions have been designed to administer such agreements. Among these are the Interstate Compact without federal participation, federal administration without state participation and some form of federal-state cooperation. This paper outlines the institutional design principles and procedures relevant to transboundary water sharing and analyzes the different institutional models.
