Improving water planning

Guest Editors: Joanne Tingey-Holyoak, Andrew Fenemor and Geoff Syme

Improved water resources planning is being called for around the globe, especially in times of increasing drought, pressurised agricultural supply chains, climate change and population growth. This Special Issue will address a range of issues pertaining to the economic, environmental and socio-cultural barriers and opportunities for more sustainable water management. It will address the practicalities of implementation of water governance in a complex world. The collection of manuscripts will highlight the history of water resources planning and management, and the current context including politics and decision making, and the role of economics, property rights, markets and justice in water management, including issues related to IWRM. In addition, innovations and ways forward will be considered. Specifically, the special issue will focus on three main areas:
