Special Issue "Social-Hydrological Resilience: Perspectives and Insights in Social-Hydrological Resilience Research"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2022 | Viewed by 4372
Social-hydrological resilience is an expanding area of research that brings attention to the complexity of human-water relations undergoing change. It brings particular attention to the fact that humans and water are fundamentally related but also that flexibility and adaptability to change are going to be crucial for the water sector to cope with global change and to avoid transgressing critical planetary boundaries.
Social-hydrological resilience has gained particular attention across both hydrological and the social science communities in order to fully capture the complexity of human-water relations. Thus far the concept has been developed through research focusing on specific case studies but also conceptual discussion papers have been developed linking the human water interface and focusing on specific water challenges such as floods, droughts, and water ecosystem restoration.
In this Special Issue, the focus is on further advancing this field and in particular developing new perspectives and insights in social-hydrological resilience research. In this Special Issue, social science perspectives are especially encouraged, however interdisciplinary points of view are also welcome. The Special Issue thus invites contributions from different disciplines that can connect to one or more of the following themes:
- Perspectives on the role of resilience in addressing human-water interactions;
- Insights from case studies examining different water bodies (i.e. rivers, lakes, and wetlands) and regions (e.g. urban, rural, peri-urban)
- Insights about the role of power and politics;
- Insights about the interaction of different bodies of knowledge and social groups (such as state, expert and citizen);
- Perspectives on the role of social equity considerations.
- Insights from the use of novel methodological approaches, including quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-method approaches.
The Special Issue invites contributions that build upon research experiences across the Global North and Global South. Contributions from the Global South are especially encouraged.
