CALL FOR PAPERS: Economics for Sustainable Water Management

Host

Stockholm International Water Institute, Environment for Development Initiative (EfD), Centre for Environmental Economics and Policy in Africa (CEEPA)

Description

Countries are now seeking ways to implement the new Agenda 2030, where water management is a central component. Evidence-based policy making is key to transparent and accountable water management, and economic analysis can contribute significantly to water policy design and decision making. Economic instruments have the potential to perform several water management functions, but need careful design and appropriate institutional framework to gain public acceptance and achieve the intended policy goals. Taking place during 2016 World Water Week, this policy-science workshop seeks to attract water policymakers, practitioners, and researchers in the field of water economics.
