Water governance is influenced by complex and increasingly dynamic interplay between various social-ecological factors. Contributing to effective water governance in times of complexity and change are issues associated with perceptions of resilience, institutional arrangements, praxis, and learning. This Special Issue aims to contribute knowledge on these issues of water governance through place-based case studies throughout the world, and, in particular, lessons for water governance in Europe.
