Civil society participation can facilitate sound energy, climate, and water governance. This article analyzes the dynamics of transnational decision-making. Part II discusses sound energy strategy in light of a shrinking water-resources base due to climate change.

Part IV concludes that process and outcome are both integral to addressing water, climate, and energy challenges.
