Over the last decade, the concept of adaptive governance has rapidly gained prominence in the scientific community as a new alternative to the traditional predict-and-control regime. However, many policy makers and practitioners are struggling to apply adaptive governance in practice. Drawing on an extensive, critical literature review of adaptive governance, network management and institutional analysis, I argue that the constraints to the uptake of adaptive governance relate to a large extent to the inability of practitioners and policy makers to cope with complexity and various uncertainties: i) ambiguous purposes and objectives of what should be achieved with governance; ii) unclear contextual conditions in which governance takes place; and, iii) uncertainty around the effectiveness of different governance strategies.

This chapter aims to assist in overcoming the challenges of making adaptive governance operational by providing a tentative framework for policy practitioners and decision makers for assessing the effectiveness of governance approaches.

Through application of the ‘fit-for-purpose’ governance procedure, a pattern of effective governance configurations during consecutive stages of transformation processes is identified. This pattern can be used to provide guidance for urban water governance reform to policy makers and governance evaluators.
