Turkey’s Water Policy Framework

Chapter

Abstract

Turkey’s water policy and management is a feature of various laws and regulations, and is subject to a range of national ministries and executive administrations. Some of the legislation governing water management dates back to the early years of the Republic. Due to numerous amendments and additions to the existing legislation in the course of time, water management in Turkey ceased to be simple.
