The objective of this Special Issue is to improve knowledge on the use of economic instruments for water policy and evaluation of the impact of water policy implementation. Contributions will be of great value for environmental agencies, administrators and regulators, and will benefit society as a whole by means of identifying ways of maximizing social utility of water resources allocation and mechanisms to implement economic instruments and methodologies. Discussion will be faciliated regarding water policies tackling drought, climatic change and overextraction in most of the arid regions of the world, such as the revision of the EU Water Framework Directive planned for 2019.
