About this book

Addressing a huge knowledge gap from a policy perspective, this book focuses on the economic tools available for stormwater runoff control. It provides case studies demonstrating the application of various incentives, such as tradable credits, fees with rebates, and auction mechanisms. The text also presents the theory behind the different mechanisms used and illustrates the obstacles to implementation. The contributors are primarily concerned with the socio-demographic and economic aspects of people's participation in stormwater runoff control.
