Legal Perspectives on Bridging Science and Policy deals with the interaction of science and policy from a legal perspective.

Expert contributors outline the role of law in water management and suggest solutions to make laws flexible and adaptive to changes in scientific knowledge and environmental, social and economic conditions. Each chapter addresses the topic with a different focus and offers an in-depth analysis of legal challenges related to the creation of interdisciplinary bridges, clarifying how science may be assimilated into decision-making processes and can thereby contribute to build evidence-based policies.

Legal Perspectives on Bridging Science and Policy will be of great interest to scholars of water law, water governance and environmental law. The book was originally published in the journal Water International, following the XVI World Water Congress of the International Water Resources Association (IWRA) (2017).
