Smart Markets for Water Resources

Tuesday, July 18, 2017
5:30 – 7:00 pm
Upstairs, Ilam Homestead
University of Canterbury

Increasing pressure on water resources means that society needs to be smarter. New technologies can combine with market approaches to get more value from water while better protecting the environment. Join us in the release of a book on one new technology, Smart Markets for Water Resources: A Manual for Implementation. The book is co-authored by John Raffensperger (now at Rand Corp.) and Waterways member Mark Milke.

The event provides an opportunity to look forward to better incorporating new technologies and market approaches in water resource management. Dr Eric Crampton, Chief Economist at the New Zealand Initiative, will open with a short presentation regarding the role of markets in freshwater management.
