News > New Book! Practical Panarchy for Adaptive Water Governance

Editors Barbara Cosens and Lance Gunderson bring together the latest thinking on the links between law and social-ecological resilience. Published by Springer, the book presents results and insights from an interdisciplinary project exploring law, policy, and ecological dimensions of governance in American and Australian regional water systems.

Contributing authors are at the forefront of a new and growing area of research linking law to social-ecological resilience and applying resilience as a bridging concept. Eighteen chapters cover a range of perspectives on factors enabling or constraining adaptive water governance and detailed historical assessment of six water basins in the U.S. yield insights into cross-scale interactions.
