Abstract [en]

Water has a critical role in sustaining both natural ecosystems and human livelihoods. However, nowadays intensive population growth and increasing pressure on natural resources lead to substantial issues related to water services provision. At the same time, mismanagement of water resources hinders water security and leads to escalation of water-related challenges. Thus, the research of principles for good water governance has got a substantial attention and aimed at establishing new policies and institutional frameworks for addressing those challenges. Pluralistic forms of governance, with the focus on community water governance has been advocated as a way to more sensibly tackle the complexity of issues linked to water systems. The present research aims to investigate the specifics of community water governance and analyze how community governance practices can contribute to a more sustainable management of water systems on the case of Oaxen island in Stockholm archipelago.
