The International Journal of Water Governance (IJWG) aims to be an important source of knowledge on governance in the domain of water and water related issues, and an inspiration for professionals to understand and improve the governance capacity in their domain(s). In order to achieve this two-sided ambition we combine urgent theoretical issues of governance, institutions, organizations and management with urgent issues of water supply and flood protection. This journal is fully open access and does not charge publication fees. The journal is open to individual paper submissions (use the Make a Submission button) and to proposals for special issues (please contact one of the editors).
