Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Water constitutes a crucial input for development in all sectors of the economy; as such its optimal management remains a critical challenge for policy makers, industry practitioners, and academics alike. This Special Issue focuses on economic approaches to sustainble management of water as a resource.  We invite reviews, as well as original research articles, which seek to explore the intersection between issues to do with water-use, economic resource management, and sustainable development as it applies to this context.
