Fig. 2. Three-level representation of multiscale social learning processes:
(1) Level 1 (micro): the multiparty collaboration process in which representatives from different stakeholder groups interact. As indicated, this level refers to the process level in the center of Fig. 1; (2) Level 2 (meso): the actors in the water management regime consisting of more or less organized stakeholder groups, e.g., authorities, associations, who may partly engage in bilateral interactions; and (3) Level 3 (macro): the governance and societal structural conditions that are characterized by cultural values, governance regime, or power structures. This level is identical to the conceptual framework illustrated in Fig. 1.
