  • Responsible citizens and accountable service providers? Renegotiating the contract between citizen and state
  • This article examines the extent to which collaboration and multidirectional accountability can be developed between the state and citizens, with a focus on a case study of Community Contracts in England. The results suggest that citi-zens are given

  • Analysing the effect of land-use/cover changes at sub-catchment levels on downstream flood peaks : A semi-distributed modelling approach with sparse data
  • This paper aims to evaluate how varying degrees of land-use/cover (LULC) changes across sub-catchments affect a flood peak at the catchment outlet. The study site was the Konar catchment, a part of the upper Damodar Basin in eastern India. A HEC-HMS
