Abstract: 
Our paper provides an introduction to, and context for, the 10 papers that comprise this special
volume: Waterscapes Asia: Concepts and Practices. We discuss the various interpretations of what
is meant by a “waterscape” and suggest some ways forward that may provide a bridge between the
theoretical waterscapes framework and practical considerations that we hope will make the
waterscapes concept more broadly useful. These 10 papers, representing contributions from India,
Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, and Indonesia are decidedly applied and consider issues of
inequitable socio-hydrological conditions that are impacted by flows of capital, political relations,
and policy. Yet, they also represent efforts in quantifying water quality and quantity within the
human-natural system nexus, and most importantly, the central theme of familiarisation as a path to
more effective waterscape management.
