The design and planning of structural and, to a lesser extent, non-structural controls for attenuating
urban surface runoff and associated pollutant loadings is now well established but their implementation varies according to scale of application and from country to country. The prime success factors driving the implementation of successful urban stormwater management controls are examined together with the problems and opportunities arising from the shift from single, centralised organisational implementation to multi-stakeholder engagement process and actions. Governance is
identified as a priority issue with varying hierarchical levels for stakeholder and governance processes contributing to the attainment of sustainable urban stormwater management. The relevance of achieving interaction between these levels to obtain the most appropriate drainage options is discussed through the application and integration of ‘individual’, ‘competitive’, ‘cooperative’,
‘collaborative’ and ‘coordination’ approaches.
