Knowledge Relationships in Freshwater Governance

March 6, 2021 Science and Technology 0

Policy formulation and implementation in freshwater governance are typically done with little regard for the thinking processes created by local communities in the resource environment, emphasising a top-down approach to water governance. Despite significant efforts to incorporate stakeholders’ perspectives into social change philosophy, individual-level or local-level observations, as well as constructs and environmental relations (cognitive view) in freshwater challenges, are often overlooked. The descriptive design of the case study research design was used to gain access to local expertise in freshwater governance. The mixed-method approach assisted in assembling information based on behavioural issues, people’s faith, and resource environmental concerns for data interpretation and debate, as well as drawing a concrete conclusion from the data. The findings provide a basis for addressing policies that simultaneously resolve both growth and behavioural determinants of freshwater depletion in order to reduce the crisis in freshwater governance through social change conservation policy.
