Elsevier Announces The Launch Of The New Journal: Water Resources And Economics

OXFORD, England, July 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Water Resources and Economics published first issue which is now freely available online on ScienceDirect

Elsevier is pleased to announce that the launch of the new journal Water Resources and Economics published in association with the International Water Association (IWA) and the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (EAERE). The first issue of the journal is a special issue presenting findings from the 10 th Annual Meeting of the International Water Resource Economics Consortium and is now available for free online on ScienceDirect.

At a time when concerns about the impact of climate change on the availability and distribution of global water resources continue to grow, Water Resources and Economics aims to provide a forum for the discussion of the economic dimensions affecting the allocation and use of water resources.

Prof. Dr. Roy Brouwer of the Institute for Environmental Studies at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Editor-in-Chief of Water Resources and Economics envisages the journal playing an important role in providing scientific information about the economic costs and benefits of water use and management.

"Economics is one of the most prominent emerging disciplines associated to water resources research. The journal addresses the financial and economic dimensions affecting the use of water resources, be it water extraction, pollution, floods or allocation, across different economic sectors like agriculture, energy, industry and urban water supply as well as between local, regional and transborder river basins," said Dr. Brouwer.

Dr. Christiane Barranguet, Executive Publisher at Elsevier added, "Access to potable water is recognized as one of the grand challenges of the 21 st century and touches nearly every country on the planet in one form or another. Consequently, research in the field of water resources is now one of the fastest growing disciplines in the world. We are proud to launch this new title together with the IWA and EAERE this year, particularly as 2013 is marked as the International Year of Water Cooperation."

Articles published in this first issue discuss the implications of studies such as those investigating the issues of "willingness to pay", avoiding restrictions on household water use during water shortages in Canada, the impact of different water management regimes on rice production in West Africa, and how water conservation incentives can gain leverage from the fact that neighbors often emulate each other's water use behavior.

All articles published in the first issue are freely available on Science Direct.
