This handbook provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview of urban water governance. 

Of  the many growing challenges presented by rapid urbanization, water  governance is a critical one and while urban water governance is now  regarded as a critical field of research, the literature is fragmented.  For the first time, this handbook brings together urban water governance  research, containing interdisciplinary contributions from established  and emerging scholars, practitioners, and policymakers. It addresses the  key questions of how urban water governance works, how is it shaped,  and what the impacts are. The handbook's structure offers a progressive  entry into the complexity of urban water governance. Starting with  technical dimensions, the handbook addresses supply and demand,  wastewater, and sanitation. It then considers regulation and economic  factors, examining water utilities and services. Political processes,  and the actors involved, are addressed and the handbook finishes with a  part focusing on governance and sustainability, where chapters address  critically important topics such as access to water, water safety, and  water security. 

This handbook is essential reading  for students, scholars, and professionals interested in urban water  governance, urban studies, and water resource management and  sustainability more broadly.
