Abstract: "This panel seeks to study the governance of resources associated with the dynamic nature of the land-water interface. Such resources may be public, private or shared. Varied theoretical lenses may be used for the conceptualization of such resource systems: social-ecological systems (Ostrom 2009), socio-hydrological systems (Sivapalan et al. 2012), socio-technical systems (Trist 1981) etc.. A wide range of entities (communities, non-governmental organizations, the private sector and the public sector), characterized by a wide range of governance modes, may be involved in the governance of such resources (Driessen et al. 2012). Such resources may be witnessing the effects of telecoupling (Liu et al. 2013) or the behavior of a wide range of actors located at different levels (ranging from the local to the global) could be influencing outcomes in such resources (Ostrom 2010). Dynamics within such systems may be studied using ideas drawn from multiple theoretical traditions: panarchy, resilience, vulnerability, adaptive capacity etc. (Gallopín 2006). In short, this panel seeks to develop a broad, holistic perspective on various dynamics which characterize resources located at the interface of land and water, in order to understand how such resources can be better governed in the future."
