Water policy

With a particular focus on the Murray Darling Basin, researchers in the Centre are exploring issues such as irrigation, environmental vs agricultural water use, and the design and operation of water markets. Further, our researchers are applying learnings from Australia and the Murray Darling Basin to assist in the design and governance of water management systems in other countries. Researchers in the Centre are conducting research specifically to understand:

  • Farmer behaviour in water markets
  • Society’s benefit from water reallocation
  • Environmental, social, cultural and agricultural water values
