KS1. DISCURSIVE SCIENCE, INNOVATIVE POLICIES AND STAKEHOLDER PARTICIPATION
Moderator: Philippus Wester, Wagenignen University, The Netherlands

The role of knowledge in building the adaptive capacity of water systems to respond to multiple stressors is critically important, both in terms of its contributions to solving problems and in terms of its co-production in the context of science-policy-stakeholders interactions. While much attention has been paid to the role of knowledge in water governance, relatively less research has been carried out on the relationship between different types of knowledge and the institutional and organizational aspects of the different models of adaptive and integrated water governance. This session will explore the role of discursive and integrative science in building adaptive capacity, especially in the context of research-policy-stakeholder interactions, paying particular attention to issues of co-production, equity, democracy and problem solving.
