Nora Schütze is a Research Associate and PhD candidate at the Section of International Agricultural Policy and Environmental Governance. She works on the research project STEER (Increasing Good Governance for Achieving the Objectives of Integrated Water Resources Management), which analyses the influence of governance and management systems on the effectiveness of coordination and cooperation in integrated and adaptive water management. More specifically, Nora works on a case study in the Guadalquivir river basin in Spain, aiming to identify deficits of coordination and cooperation in the context of agricultural water consumption.
Within the scope of her doctoral thesis, Nora analyzes coordination between the water and the agricultural sector in three river basins in Spain (Guadalquivir, Jucar, Mediterranean Basins of Andalusia), applying the concept of polycentricity.
