Special Issue: Water Diplomacy
What does diplomacy have to do with water? Is cooperation over transboundary surface and ground waters the exclusive domain of diplomats and foreign policy experts? Or mainly the purview of water professionals negotiating agreements on shared water resources? Why should for example NGO representatives be involved in transboundary water dialogues? These questions lie at the heart of debates and dialogues around the theory and practice of water diplomacy. ISDP’s Associated Research Fellow Martina Klimes, an Adviser at the Stockholm International Water Institute, is a guest editor of this Special Issue of the Journal of Hydrology on the topic of water diplomacy. The Special Issue is in response to a growing demand for knowledge about water diplomacy and in particular about the linkages between political and technical tracks. The issue can be found here.
