NEWAVE - Next Water Governance

The NEWAVE project aims to point the way forward in the global debate about water governance. It does so by developing research and training for a new generation of future water governance leaders, and by equipping them with the transdisciplinary skills to better tackle water challenges.

NEWAVE is rooted in the conviction that the rising threats of future water crises and hydro-social challenges, present an urgent need to enhance the global capacity to reflect critically on the current water governance trajectory. In that light NEWAVE takes three interrelated steps as it aims to:


  • Bring together an excellent trans-national and transdisciplinary network of water governance organisations;
  • Develop and implement a cutting-edge actionable research agenda on the key water governance priorities and insights for future directions;
  • Train a new generation of water governance early stage researchers (ESRs) and ensure that they have the trans- and interdisciplinary skills to make significant contributions to both the academic and extra-academic water governance world.
