about this item

The objective of this book is to illustrate, in general terms, the general matters of water governance, mapping the spectrum of decision-making. From a techno-centric and eco-centric approach, or a hybrid concept, to a people-centric approach; mapping the transition. The challenges to water-governance models will be considered as well as examining the polycentric model (least resistance; prefer using multi-level; reduce jargon), the integration challenge, water in the decision-making hierarchy, the rise of water-sensitive design whilst considering interdependencies between the stakeholders, as well as the issue of scale. This information will be presented in an integrated and a comprehensive way building on some detailed case studies from around the world. The set of book chapters presented in this volume will be based on the existing current knowledge as well as the authors’ working experiences in the water sector using non-technical jargon in order to achieve a wider audience. The target audience of this volume will range from academics, technicians, decision-makers, managers to students; the aim is to target not just academia but also policy-makers and deep thinkers.
