Water Trading and Global Water Scarcity: International Experiences

Nov 19, 2012

From the publisher:

Water scarcity is an increasing problem in many parts of the world, yet conventional supply-side economics and management are insufficient to deal with it. One of the key water management options for water demand is water trading. This book explores the role and success of water trading as an instrument of integrated water resources management. It studies the institutional framework and how transactions have been undertaken, and concludes by making policy proposals to improve implementation.
