Championing good governance through an appreciation of legitimacy dialogues

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


This presentation aims to address how urbanisation and privisation over the past two decades have changed the policy landscape within which water professionals work. In order to meet the challenges of this new era the author argues that water professionals need to better understand the legitimation dialogues that exist between water planners, water companies and water users. By strengthening the bonds of trust and co-operation between the three domains, opportunities for good governance are greatly improved.
