  • Inadequacy of positivistic research to explain complexity of water management

    The paper looks at alternative scientific research approaches and traditions related to Water Resources Management (WRM) and Water Supply and Sanitation (WSS) services. How can they explain the problem-oriented water governance challenges, and how do they apply to multi- and inter-disciplinary research? It is argued that the bias in favour of a positivistic approach and natural sciences in water ...

  • NoiseNews: Something Fishy Going on in British Waters?

    The seas around Britain may be getting too noisy. So noisy in fact that fish species such as cod and haddock are having difficulty communicating with each other. If their chatter is being obscured, it could affect their ability to breed at a time when stock numbers are recovering. It has long been recognised that large marine mammals are susceptible to noise pollution – as ...

  • Linking Water Science to Policy: Results from a Series of National Workshops on Water

    To ensure science better informs the decision-making process, researchers and policy/program managers need to understand and respect each other's way of working, culture and operational timelines. However, there is little practical guidance on how this should be done and even less documented experience with specific mechanisms that better link these two groups. The published literature on ...
