Call for Contributions: Special Issue on Water Conflict Prevention

Calls for contribution

UNU-CRIS' Climate and Natural Resource cluster seeks contributions for the Special Issue 'Water Conflict Prevention'. This special issue aims to present a collection of up-to-date research and narratives for understanding the critical nature of water across a myriad of uses, users, and a broad range of stakeholders, disputes over water, competing sectors, incusing focus on riparian countries sharing the water basin.

Contributions will also enhance the learning on unclear or contested property rights to a valuable common pool resource (water, wetlands…) that add to the potential for disputes by presenting narratives that can assist to avoid, mitigate, or resolve conflicts over water cover a wide range of legal, institutional, technological, and diplomatic approaches.

This Special Issue is dedicated to instruments and innovations in water policy intended to aid in the prevention of conflict over water resources, especially among competing nations, including at the sub-national, regional, and international levels. Both theoretical and empirical contributions are welcome that can contribute towards addressing processes of global cooperation and regional integration and their implications for water-related conflict management and cooperation in water sharing.
