The general conference of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR), which will be organized in Bordeaux, 4-7 September 2013, has a promising program for those interested in climate and water governance. Katrien Termeer (Wageningen University, the Netherlands) and Joerg Knieling (HafenCity Universität Hamburg, Germany) will organize a Section on climate change governance (Section nr 07).They aim to bring together a series of panels focusing on governance issues relating to three key challenges of climate change: (1) limiting the magnitude of climate change, through for example reducing greenhouse gas emissions, transforming energy production or reforestation; (2) developing and implementing adjustments to adapt to the effects of climate change, through for example dykes or changing spatial planning, and (3) increasing the adaptive capacity of society to deal with (unexpected) future changes through broader processes of societal change .

Our intention with this blog is to provide a platform for a discussion on developments in water governance. Why water? Because we believe water is the key resource for our future. As our planet gets more and more populated, it is important to manage it in a sustainable way. Why governance? Because we believe that the way in which we collectively manage water deserves much more attention and consideration. Change the world, work with water!
