This book presents the complexity and many dimensions of groundwater governance in 28 chapters, written by a global team of leading experts. The first part of the book defines groundwater governance, exploring its emergence and evolution, framing it through a socio-ecological lens and describing groundwater policy and planning approaches. The second part discusses key aspects of groundwater governance, including leadership, political support, participation, cooperation, and conflict resolution. The third examines the linkages between groundwater and other resources/sectors and the fourth part presents eight case studies that illustrate current practices in groundwater governance worldwide.
