Abstract:Public participation has been one of the principal topics in water management for decades. As sustainable water management urges the countries, involvement of community into the matter is considered as the basic need of water management as well as making better policies towards it. Although it is an important aspect of water management, implementation of public participation mechanism is a challenging task for administrations, as a number of elements needs to be considered. The objective of this researcher is to create empirical and methodological insights on participatory water management in Turkey. The research methodology involved a qualitative analysis and a systematic in-depth review process for peer-reviewed publications available on Scopus database. Implementations have been made towards meeting of WFD requirements are promising changes in the country. However, the findings of this thesis indicate that participatory water management in Turkey lacks a comprehensive application, and suggests improvement of engagement activities for practicing participatory mechanisms at community level and capacity building of the institutions.
