Kevin Grecksch has been appointed co-editor for the Palgrave Macmillan book series ‘Global Challenges in Water Governance’. He will share the editorship with Shilpi Srivastava, research fellow at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) in Brighton. Both, Kevin and Shilpi, are committed to the challenges water governance faces in the present and the future and their research covers a wider range of issues within water governance that spans across the globe. Kevin has also recently published a monograph on drought and water scarcity in the UK within this book series. The ‘Global Challenges in Water Governance’ book series is part of Palgrave Macmillan’s Pivot publishing format. Manuscripts are typically between 20,000 and 50,000 words in length, are peer-reviewed and have a quick turnaround time from submission to publication. Kevin and Shilpi are interested in exciting proposals in the field of water governance and can be approached directly.
