Special issue: Conflict and Cooperation: Cross-Border Water Governance in the Americas

Access to water is essential for human beings, but it is also a scarce resource, in some countries more than in others. This generates conflicts about its use, access and, of course, its pollution. How to study the case of transboundary waters, seas, rivers or wetlands, and which is the ideal level of governance are complex questions, as there are many environmental, economic and human rights interests at stake.

This special issue of Water (ISSN 2073-4441) in the section "Water Resources Management, Policy and Governance" on "Conflict and Cooperation: The Duality of Cross-Border Water Governance" seeks to explore the interplay between conflict and cooperation around transboundary waters in the Americas. We also welcome contributions with comparative analyses between the Americas and other continents.

For more information about the scope and the open access options, please contact the editors.
