The Global Water Partnership notes that the crisis in the water sector is a one of governance. The same is true for environmental management. Water management is an integral part of ecosystem governance and is closely linked to the sustainable development discourse. This book unpacks the core elements of governance, with a specific focus on water. It analyzes the linkages between key variables in an effort to increase our understanding of what makes governance good. It is a necessary read for any environmental/water resource professional tasked with the responsibility of implementing Integrated Environmental and Water Resource Management and Sustainable Development.
