Who are we?

Welcome to our blog on water governance! 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!
