Consumer preferences for water billing structures: A choice modelling approach AgEcon
Crase, Lin; O'Keefe, Sue.
The structure of water tariffs is attracting the interest of scholars concerned about the efficacy of the present pricing arrangements. However, finding consensus on the ‘'appropriate'’ structure of water and wastewater tariffs has proven problematic. In addition, relatively little is understood of the preferences of consumers in this context. This paper reports the findings of a recent study that developed empirical models of consumer preferences for billing structures for urban water use in regional Victoria.

Determinants of Institutional Performance in Watershed Management: A Study of the Nature and Performance of WatershedDevelopment Institutions in Andhra Pradesh, India AgEcon
Gandhi, Vasant P.; Crase, Lin.
The study examines the nature and performance of watershed development institutions in India. Improving productivity and incomes in rainfed areas, which have much poverty, is a major challenge in India, and a huge initiative through which this is pursued is Watershed Development (WSD) programs which are massively funded by the Government of India, state governments and external donors. In watershed development, combining scientific approaches with community participation and knowledge is a major problem and requires effective institutions, which is a major weakness. The study examines the design and performance of watershed development institutions using new institutional economics, and management theory of governance. It analyzes data collected in a...

Determinants of Institutional Success for Water in India: Results from a Study across Three States AgEcon
Gandhi, Vasant P.; Crase, Lin; Herath, Gamini.
There has been substantial focus on water resource development in India, but with emphasis mainly on the technical side. Development of institutions to manage the interactions and arrangements necessary has received little attention. The study uses the new institutional economics framework and governance theories to probe local institutions in water resource management. 29 institutions and 450 households are covered and the data analysed through univariate Anova and multivariate Tobit regressions. The results show the importance of technical, organizational and political governance provided by the institutions. Achievement of efficiency, equity, environment and finance objectives depends substantially on lowering transaction costs through advancing means...

Institutional Constraints and Inter-jurisdictional Water Trade: The Case of the Australian Capital Territory and New South Wales AgEcon
Pagan, Phil; Crase, Lin.
Water trade remains a contentious political issue in Australia, regardless of the acknowledged benefits to which economists continually refer. At least two sources of concern arise in discussions about water trade. First, concerns are often expressed about inter-sectoral ramifications. These usually take the form of prophecies about the profligate growth of urban centres being achieved at the expense of regional and rural communities. Second, mention of unfettered trade between jurisdictions is usually sufficient to provoke rhetoric that draws upon long-standing rivalries between states. This paper considers the benefits of water trade between agricultural interests in the Murrumbidgee Valley in New South Wales and the predominantly urban users in the...

New Institutional Economics, Governance and the Performance of Water Institutions in India AgEcon
Gandhi, Vasant P.; Crase, Lin.
There has been substantial water resources development for agriculture in India but the emphasis has been mainly on the technical side - the building of the necessary institutions required for effective management of the resource has received little attention. Many believe that water resource management in India is heading for a crisis unless the institutions and related policies are rapidly transformed. In this light, the study examines key features of water institutions in India, applying new institutional economics fundamentals, as well as management theories of good governance. The study uses a survey of 29 water institutions and 450 farm households conducted across three states in India which face water scarcity and have attempted to address it...

Personality, Objectives, Attitudes, Intentions and Behaviour: Modelling the Adoption of Current Recommended Practice by Farmers in the NSW Murray Catchment AgEcon
Crase, Lin; Maybery, Darryl.
The degradation of the natural resource base that derives from unsustainable farm practices is of major concern in Australia. Confronted with mounting evidence of the extent of this degradation, governments have employed a variety of policy instruments to induce change amongst the farming community. However, there remains a widely-held view that the rate of adoption of alternative practices falls well short of that required to avert disaster and additional measures are required to accelerate change. In this context, an understanding of the processes that lead particular farmers to adopt current recommended practices would provide valuable insights to assist policy formulation. Whilst some work has been undertaken in this area, a major deficiency resides in...

Regulation versus pricing in urban water policy: the case of the Australian National Water Initiative AgEcon
Byrnes, Joel; Crase, Lin; Dollery, Brian.
The Australian National Water Initiative (NWI) builds on the foundations of earlier water reforms, attempts to correct earlier errors in both policy and its implementation, and seeks to better define some of the policy aims with the benefit of hindsight. However, despite the deliberate effort to improve on earlier reforms, the NWI still embodies a significant economic paradox. Although policymakers have shown their faith in the market insofar as allocating water between competing agricultural interests is concerned, they have not shown the same degree of faith in the ability of urban users to respond to price signals. This paper attempts to shed at least some light on this question by examining the responses of a number of State governments across...

The valuation of market information from livestock selling complexes AgEcon
Crase, Lin; Dollery, Brian.
The efficient operation of livestock markets is contingent upon producers accessing relevant market information which assists adjustment to production and distribution. This article provides an analysis of the value of market information gleaned by producers attending public livestock auctions. The article uses the Travel Cost Method to quantify the value of this information and notes the limitations of applying the Travel Cost Method in this context.

URBAN WATER RESTRICTIONS: ACCOUNTING FOR BEHAVIOURAL DIFFERENCES AgEcon
Cooper, Bethany; Crase, Lin.
Notwithstanding the neoclassical predilection for markets as a means of allocating scarce resources, it remains the case that state-devised attenuation of behaviour is the norm for many resource allocation decisions. This is particularly apparent in the case of water in urban areas in Australia, where mandated water restrictions limit the forms of water use that are permissible. Whilst there has been much debate about the efficacy of this approach, an important underlying question relates to the motivations for individuals to comply. More specifically, if a restriction regime is broadly in line with underlying motivations then, prima facie, it will generate less severe welfare losses than one which is largely at odds with individual drivers of behaviour.

Urban Water Restrictions: Attitudes and Avoidance AgEcon
Cooper, Bethany; Crase, Lin; Burton, Michael P..
In most urban cities across Australia, water restrictions remain the dominant policy mechanism to restrict urban water consumption. The extensive adoption of water restrictions over several years means that Australian urban water prices have consistently not reflected the opportunity cost of water (Edwards 2008). Given the generally strong political support for water restrictions and the likelihood that they will persist for some time, there is value in understanding householders’ attitudes in this context. More specifically, identifying the welfare gains associated with avoiding urban water restrictions entirely would be a non-trivial contribution to our knowledge. This paper is used to describe the results from a contingent valuation study that...

Urban Water Restrictions: Attitudes, Information and Willingness to Pay AgEcon
Cooper, Bethany; Crase, Lin.
In most urban cities across Australia, water restrictions remain the dominant policy mechanism to restrict urban water consumption. The extensive adoption of water restrictions over several years means that Australian urban water prices have consistently not reflected the opportunity cost of water (Edwards 2008). Given the generally strong political support for water restrictions and the likelihood that they will persist for some time, there is value in understanding householders’ attitudes in this context. More specifically, identifying the welfare estimate associated with avoiding urban water restrictions entirely would be a non-trivial contribution to our knowledge of the costs that attend them. This paper employs the results from the stated preference...

Urban Water Restrictions: Unbundling Motivations, Compliance and Policy Viability AgEcon
Cooper, Bethany; Crase, Lin.
The welfare costs of urban water restrictions are now well recognised, even if not yet quantified with precision (see, for example, Edwards 2008). Notwithstanding the costs that attend this form of intervention, governments have proven reluctant to abandon them, at least until additional infrastructure is in place. Accordingly, some form of behavioural constraint over the use of water is now applied in almost every major urban centre in Australia. Against this background there is value in understanding the motivations for individuals to comply with water restrictions. There is also much to be gained from developing an appreciation of the preferences for different restriction regimes. There is also scope to address wider politico-economic considerations as...

Water Buy-Back in Australia: Political, Technical and Allocative Challenges AgEcon
Crase, Lin; O'Keefe, Sue; Dollery, Brian.
State and Federal governments are increasingly reliant on the re-purchase of water access rights as a vehicle for bringing ‘over-allocation’ in the Murray- Darling Basin into check. Not surprisingly, this has attracted criticism from several quarters, usually on the basis that such mechanisms produce unnecessary hardship for rural communities. Set against this are the views of many economists who have bemoaned the modest endeavours of governments to actively use water markets and the ongoing proclivity of agencies to instead embark on public projects under the guise of water use efficiency (see, for example Watson 2008). This paper focuses specifically on water buyback and traces recent policy episodes in this context. The paper also offers details of...

Water markets as a vehicle for water reform: the case of New South Wales AgEcon
Crase, Lin; O'Reilly, Leo; Dollery, Brian.
Water reform in NSW is being undertaken using an adaptive approach in recognition of the uncertainty and imperfect knowledge embodied in the riverine environment. However, the reform process also relies, in part, on the ability of markets for tradable water entitlements to develop and thereby assist in allocating scarce water resources to their highest value use. This article explores impediments to the formation of efficient markets in permanent tradable water entitlements in NSW. The article concludes that more attention should be paid to market failures and related problems which manifest themselves in thin markets for permanent water entitlements.

Water rights: a comparison of the impacts of urban and irrigation reforms in Australia AgEcon
Crase, Lin; Dollery, Brian.
Although there has been a policy thrust towards making all Australians more cognisant of the relative scarcity of water resources, the approach adopted for urban dwellers differs markedly from that applied to irrigators. These differences are examined from a property-rights perspective focussing primarily on the institutional hierarchies in the Victorian water sector. The analysis reveals significant attenuation of urban dwellers’ rights, presumably on the basis of the information deficiencies that circumscribe urban water use. Alternative policy options are then proposed, which might alleviate some of these information deficiencies and simultaneously address the efficiency losses that attend the present arrangements.
