We are proud to present you the very first issue of the International Journal on Water Governance (IJWG). The aim of this journal is to become an important source of knowledge on governance of complex water systems, and a source of inspiration for all professionals in the water domain to improve the governance capacity. We want to focus on actual and urgent theoretical issues and bring them further by application and elaboration in the domains of water. From a variety of disciplines, we will gather new insights on what constitutes the governance capacity with regard to specific topics, like water quality, flooding and scarcity.
