Abstract: The concept of river basin based management is strongly rooted in participation of stakeholders in the planning, decision making and implementation processes. It also visualises equitable sharing of resources of river basins in the context of integrated management (GWP 2000). A stakeholder can be defined as an interested individual, group or institution that may or may not be affected by decisions or actions pertaining to a specific resource, and may or may not be part of decision-making about the resource. Experiences of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) from various countries across the world bring out critical issues regarding identification of stakeholders in river basins and their involvement in basin management. In most cases, stakeholder participation is found to be an elusive concept with no serious thought or effort given to addressing context-specific issues in identifying stakeholders, or ensuring their representation and power in decision making (Clever 1999; Wester et.al. 2003; Thompson 2003; Clever and Franks 2005).
