basin and coastal system framework, including its governing authorities, methods, and practices. Examples are presented in which an integrated approach to planning and management has been used and barriers to a more consistent application of this approach are identified.

Chapter 5 considers a range of issues (knowledge, jurisdictional, institutional, regulatory, funding, guidance, and policy) that present barriers to a more consistent implementation of integrated water resources management in the river basin and coastal system context. Actions or directions to address these issues are proposed.
