A”Ensuring that everybody has access to drinking water, sanitation and enough nutritious food, which depends on water to grow it, are prerequisites for a healthy life. Water management is not just about the technical aspects of water supply and sanitation. It is equally about our water governance systems, including policies, regulation and societal perception of water rights. This book presents many helpful examples of how different societies are dealing with these issues and of the performance of public and private sector players in this important arena.A• A Colin Chartres, International Water Management Institute (IWMI), Colombo, Sri Lanka A”I congratulate the Institute of Water Policy, the two editors and the contributors for a very thoughtful book on urban water governance.
