Integrated urban water management is challenging because it requires improvements in governance. Two key elements of governance include mechanisms and processes on the one hand, and structures or institutions on the other. Integrated urban water management requires making connections between sub-sectors or functions of government and civil society; institutions and organisations that are traditionally
separate. A well-balanced and adequate understanding of water governance in a particular city depends on inputs from key stakeholders and a skilled analyst. This guideline argues that understanding and improving governance are challenging, but crucial foundations for achieving change in the way that water is managed. [authors abstract]
