Careful reconsideration of strategies to achieve water management ambitions, together with a more in-depth knowledge of the theories and practices of boundary spanning, could bring solutions for contemporary water problems within reach. Governance and Complexity in Water Management incorporates conceptual, theoretical and practical foci on dealing with complexity and conflict by boundary spanning in adaptive water management. Guidance for boundary spanning in practice is presented, and important contemporary water management themes including flooding and flood policy, water depletion and water restoration are discussed in detail.

This is the first book to describe, analyze and prescribe water transitions through a boundary perspective. This book provides an unique combination of theory, application, and analysis. It will be a valuable book for water professionals, policy scientists, students, and scholars in natural resource management and especially water management.
