dc.description.abstract In recent years Alberta's water management style has moved from government to governance. With this change in style, many questions around governance capacity and capacity-building needs arise. This thesis assessed the current capacity and capacity-building needs for water governance in Alberta as perceived by stakeholders directly involved in water governance. It was organized around two objectives. The first objective was to develop a conceptual framework of water governance capacity, based on the literature on capacity. The second objective was to conduct an assessment of stakeholders’ perception of the current capacity and capacity-building needs for water governance. This was accomplished by using the conceptual framework to design questions for data collection, interviewing stakeholders, collecting pertinent government documents, and analyzing the collected data. The findings suggest that there are areas with capacity and areas that require capacity-building. en_US
