This comprehensive Handbook explores the role that economics plays in water resource use, management, and policy. The contributors cover a continuum of topics that individually and jointly represent the state of the art of water economics. Leading scholars demonstrate ways in which economic theory, tools, and analyses have been used to address a variety of water-related issues over the years and, subsequently, to create better-informed policy and management decisions. Acknowledging and building upon the seminal research related to water economics, this book offers a current and provocative exploration of a variety of topics, including: * the role of institutions in developing sound water policy and water sustainability * extraction, production, and use of surface water, groundwater, and recycled water, including the conjunctive use of these resources * the use of water in industrial, residential, agricultural, and hydropower sectors as well as for the environment and ecosystems * the role of experimental economics; methods to address climate change effects and adaptation; developments in the field of nonmarket valuation; approaches to nonpoint source pollution control and salinity pollution; issues related to water in the developing world; water and economic growth; and management of international water. The Handbook of Water Economics will prove to be an enlightening, thought-provoking, and practical read for PhD students, researchers in water economics and management, water-related agency staff, and professionals interested in water-related economic issues at the local, state, national, and international levels.

`The Handbook of Water Economics provides a comprehensive treatment of the economics of water. Compiling contributions from over 40 water economists, the book encompasses a breadth of topics ranging from theoretical frameworks to methods, and from traditional problems to emerging challenges. Accessible to graduate students, researchers, and professionals, the book offers a broad overview of water-related issues, and covers essential material for developing a solid understanding of the role economics plays in driving water use, informing policy and designing long-term solutions.' -- Cloe Garnache, Water Economics and Policy `. . . Handbook of Water Economics by Dinar and Schwabe focuses on current issues in water economics. The Handbook, hence, presents, methods that water economists often apply and the role that water economics plays in water resources management, use and policy.' -- European Review of Agricultural Economics `The evidence is clear that water conflicts and water management continue to present profound obstacles to peace and sustainable livelihoods. Ariel Dinar and Kurt Schwabe have produced a compelling collection of readings that offer important insights into this persistent problem. Chapters cover conceptual issues, competing uses, valuation, sectoral allocation, water markets, energy production, residential and industrial uses, ecosystems, water quality, and international (transboundary) concerns. This impressive volume will become an essential reference for years to come.' -- Daniel W. Bromley, University of Wisconsin-Madison, US `All in all, the book offers very interesting individual contributions by eminent scholars, illustrating the wide scope of water economics and the careful analysis that is necessary for this economic resource `with distinctive features.' -- Australian Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics
