New in HOORC's Library: Handbook of Water Economics

The Handbook of Water Economics by Colin Green offers theory, methods and applications for the growing area of water economics and the environment. Aimed at researchers in environmental management, geography and engineering and hydrology, as well as professionals and policy makers in water companies, water authorities, NGOs and government agencies, the book introduces the reader to methods of economic evaluation, use of economic instruments and cost-benefit analysis. The chapters about applications include case studies of water availability, sewerage and waste water treatment, navigation, hydro-electric and multipurpose reservoirs, flooding, and hydrometric data. A useful resource for those working to understand the value of the Okavango's natural resources, the book can be found in HOORC's Library.
