Hence, this book is a very timely and welcomed compilation of articles exploring nature-based solutions for flood risk management on privately-owned lands.

By detailing the why, where, when and how of definitional struggles animating French fracking policy, they offer many insights into how policy “problems” and “solutions” are made and unmade. A brilliant evocation of the politics of meaning and how it matters for explaining policy outcomes.’ – Christopher Ansell, University of California, Berkeley, US 2022 256 pp Hardback 978 1 80220 172 7 £90.00 / $130.00 eBook • Elgaronline Advances in Critical Policy Studies series A Research Agenda for Public–Private Partnerships and the Governance of Infrastructure Edited by Graeme A.
