Abstract:The Spanish National Hydrological Plan (SNHP) is a controversial law the Government of Spain approved in 2001 to enhance the distribution of water across the country. One of the main projects of the plan is the transport of water from non-rigid regions located at the Ebro delta to waterstressed areas at the east coast of Spain. Due to emerging problems for people affected by the SNHP several actors lobbied for a new plan. After a change in government the Modification of the Spanish National Hydrological Plan (MSNHP) was introduced in 2005 (Bukowski, 2007). Although also the European Union (EU) is preoccupied about the issue , no common EU legislation concerning water scarcity was approved so far. Despite the fact that no EU policies exist, involvement of the EU in this area can still be found (European Commission, 2010a). In the bachelor thesis the participation of different actors after the implementation of the SNHP from 2001 is analyzed. The aim is to indicate main actors that influenced the modification of the original plan. Among the actors the EU is brought into central focus .
