About this book

Focusing on examples from China, Mexico, Morocco, South Africa, and Turkey, the book provides a clear methodology for studying farm-level demand for irrigation water. This book is the first to link the macroeconomics of policies affecting trade to the microeconomics of water demand for irrigation and water user rights.

An important contribution. Water economists as well as quantitative policy analysts will find an abundance of useful information. - David Zilberman, University of California, Berkeley"
