The Generation, Diffusion, and Impact of Innovations in Global Water Governance D av e H u i t e m a and Sander Meijerink 1. I n t r o d u c t i o n The purpose of this contribution is to turn an eye to the worldwide discussion on water governance of the past decades, and key innovations that have been proposed there. We do so because water is a major passion of Helen Ingramâs, she is a critical follower of water governance innovations (see for instance Ingram, 2008), and she is a stern advocate for applying social science theory to water management issues (see, e.g., Blatter and Ingram, 2001). We also do so because water managers around the world are surrounded by increasingly uncertain and unpredictable social and ecological environments. Huitema et al. (2010, no page number available) write: The field of water management is in flux. Climate change is making itself felt, as an increase in the occurrence of extreme water events and rising sea levels are expected (see, e.g., Easterling et al. 2000, Cabanes et al. 2001, Gleick at al. 2001, Alley et al. 2005). Serious flaws in the traditional engineering approach
