International Water Resource Economics Consortium (IWREC) 10th Annual Meeting

Convened by: International Water Resource Economics Consortium (IWREC), Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

The International Water Resource Economics Consortium (IWREC) is the premiere global platform for water economists to share and debate new research on water economics. SIWI is proud to host the 10th Annual Meeting where you can learn from leading experts on the use of economics in water management and decision making.

The event will feature a Chief Economists Panel debate, a keynote speech and presentations from leading experts in the application of economic analysis in water management and decision making. Papers on the topics of economics of irrigated and/or rainfed agriculture, economics of institutional design to manage hydrological variability, and economics of transboundary water management will be discussed.

The panellists of the Chief Economists Panel will present their insights on where economic analyses is contributing to the design of smarter water policy and what advancements are needed to better support decision-makers in the future. They will identify the key constraints that impede the use of sound economics to guide water management and debate how best to overcome them.
