Abstract

Sound governance is needed to address water issues, but soundness is a contested concept that should be further specified in societal debates. These debates can benefit from interdisciplinary knowledge. The 10 Building Blocks Approach, a tool developed to generate such knowledge, has been widely applied in research and teaching. In this paper, we draw on the literature and reflect on the experiences of using this approach by elucidating the strengths and weaknesses identified during its applications. Based on our reflections, we propose a revised version of the approach.
