The broader intellectual objective of the article is, first, to explore desalinated water governance, how the actors are involved (regulatory choices and spatial interpretations) and which interests they pursue. Second, the article considers how desalinated water is strategically articulated through the mining industry´s social licence to operate. Finally, the article presents how social challenges, due to multi-level governance, are inherent in the practice of desalination.
