Workshop- Water markets and policy
The Centre for Water Economics, Environment and Policy (CWEEP) at the Crawford School of Public Policy held a productive inaugural annual workshop on emerging policy issues in water in Canberra in March 2011. This second workshop will explore water markets with a special focus on rural water markets. It will examine climate change consequences, environmental water holder trade, irrigator adaptability and options for improving water makets.
Informative speakers from a variety of academic, industry and government agencies will present their research and experience and its application to water market policy and practice. There will be presenters from the Universities of South Australia, Canberra, Queensland and Alberta, Canada and from Monash and La Trobe Universities and The Australian National University. Industry representatives from Marsden Jacob Associates and Waterfind will provide a commercial perspective. Government agencies, including the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities; the National Water Commission; the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder; CSIRO; the Bureau of Meteorology; the Australian Bureau of Agricultural Resources Economics and Sciences and the Murray-Darling Basin Authority, are sending speakers.
This workshop is presented by the Centre for Water Economics, Environment and Policy at the Crawford School of Public Policy in partnership with the Centre for Regulation and Market Analysis at the University of South Australia and National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility.
