Water Management and Water Governance in a Changing Climate by Patrick Huntjens


This book strengthens the conceptual foundations and practical value of adaptive approaches to water management and water governance in a changing climate. On the basis of a broad comparative analysis of policies and practices in Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia, it focuses on the capacity of management regimes to cope with the two most common extreme weather events: floods and droughts. "Patrick Huntjens has transcended in his work conceptual and methodological boundaries and developed a comprehensive approach to derive unique insights into the dynamics of water governance and management in the context of climate change." Prof. Dr. Claudia Pahl-Wostl, Institute of Environmental Systems Research (USF).
