Global Challenges in Water Governance: Environments, Economies, Societies

Global Challenges in Water Governance: Environments, Economies, Societies By Prof. Jeremy J. Schmidt, Dr. Nathanial Matthews
English | PDF | 2017 | 130 Pages | ISBN : 3319615025 | 1.24 MB

This book presents a historically situated explanation of the rise of global water governance and the contemporary challenges that global water governance seeks to address. It is particularly concerned with connecting what are often technical issues in water management with the social and political structures that affect how technical and scientific advice affects decisions. Schmidt and Matthews are careful to avoid the pitfalls of setting up opposing binaries, such as ‘nature versus culture’ or ‘private versus public’, thereby allowing readers to understand how contests over water governance have been shaped over time and why they will continue to be so.

This book extends the reader’s knowledge by exploring and theorising the adaptation of the IAF after ERP introduction and points towards future trends.
