About this Research Topic

Manuscript Submission Deadline 31 October 2022
Manuscript Extension Submission Deadline 30 November 2022

Here we present the ‘Water Governance and Practice’ series, a string of interlinked Research Topics devoted entirely to reviews, perspectives, and critiques of policy and governance within the water sectors, the gap between expectations and reality, and practicalities of real-world implementations.

Policy and Practice Reviews, Policy Briefs, Perspectives, and Opinions provide an opportunity for researchers - whether academics or practitioners - to assess more or less systematically the merits and pitfalls of the regulations that are currently in place within the water sectors. This is critical to inform policy and decision makers on the effectiveness and efficiency of existing rules and on the gaps that need to be closed in future regulations to meet short- and long-term goals.

More so than ever before, water governance and policy have been rising to prominence in view of the UN Climate Change Conferences, particularly the recent COP26 and the upcoming COP27 summits. Therefore, Frontiers in Water has decided to create a unique space to welcome policy overviews and critiques to provide policy makers, decision makers, researchers, and the wider readership with an understanding of how different facets of water governance and policy affect the different water sectors and their functioning.

This particular Research Topic welcomes contributions addressing the issue of water governance and policy from a perspective of adaptation to the current climate crisis.

Although Policy and Practice Reviews, Policy Briefs, Perspectives, and Opinions represent the main focus of this Research Topic series, other article types may be considered, provided the submissions offer a reflection of some sort on policy-related issues. The tone should be descriptive or reflective of a particular aspect of water governance and its applications in real-world scenarios, and a strong focus should be placed on the offering of actionable recommendations.

Important Note: All contributions within this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and Journal to which they are submitted, as defined in the mission statement. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or Journal at any peer review stage.

Keywords: Water governance, water policy, climate adaptation, urban resilience, disaster risk mitigation
