Abstract :This paper investigates the structure of the social systems that make it possible to maintain regional groundwater resources, as well as related social dilemmas. In Japan, under the law, groudwater is not assigned to any particular entity, as it is considered a public resource, and there is no centralized authority, which can rule groundwater management. In the Kumamoto region, diverse groups, corporations, and local governments have come together in a multilevel collaboration to establish a local groundwater preservation system that will conduct groundwater recharge. Through field research, we were able to structure, through self-governance, and self-organization, a management system for the protection of the commons, which can overcome numerous policy hurdles. We will discuss whether, in this regard, the results of this systemic framework for governance and management have overcome various social dilemmas. This study advances our understanding of public-private co-management system.
