      As water scarcity and population pressures increase, more countries are adopting water pricing mechanisms as their primary means of regulating the consumption of irrigation water. The way to allocate water efficiently is to get the prices right, but how to accomplish this is open to debate. Water pricing methods are sensitive to the social. A useful means for achieving efficient allocation of irrigation water is to put the right price tag on it. This article discusses some of the more pervasive pricing methods and compares their efficiency performance, paying special attention to the impact of the cost of implementing each method on its efficiency.

    Efficiency and Equity Considerations in Pricing and Allocating Irrigation Water. Article. The authors examine both the efficiency and the equity of different methods of pricing irrigation. Irrigation water pricing: policy implications based on international comparison. Yacov Tsur, Ariel Dinar (), Rachid M. Doukkali and Terry Roe. Environment and Development Economics, , vol. 9, issue 6, Abstract: This paper is concerned with the regulation of irrigation water via pricing. The main concepts underlying efficient water use are first discussed and then applied in.

    objectives, that is efficiency and equity considerations. While economic efficiency is concerned with the amount of wealth that can be generated by a given resource base, equity deals with the distribution of the total wealth among the sectors and individuals of society. Many forms of water allocation schemes attempt to combine both efficiency. Enjoy millions of the latest Android apps, games, music, movies, TV, books, magazines & more.

r Elsevier Science Ltd. 1. Introduction. Agriculture demands more water than any other single activity, requiring 69% of the world's water supply (Holden and Thobani, ).In many countries, efforts to raise levels of agricultural production through increases in cultivated land, cropping intensity and yields have led to a greater dependence on irrigation.

Methods of allocating water are sensitive to physical, social, institutional and political settings, making it necessary to design allocation mechanisms accordingly. This paper surveys current and past views on allocating irrigation water with a focus on efficiency, equity, water institutions, and the political economy of water allocation.

Efficiency in freshwater allocation can be partitioned into two different but related concepts: (i) allocative efficiency, an outcome where it is not possible to reallocate water across different uses and increase overall consumer surplus for the given water supply and existing level of cost recovery, including full compensation for water users.

Downloadable. This paper is concerned with the regulation of irrigation water via pricing. The main concepts underlying efficient water use are first discussed and then applied in actual practice to demonstrate empirically how readily available data can be used to implement pricing schemes that achieve efficient allocation of water.

The policy discussion includes also equity considerations. This paper will argue that increased demand for water resources and higher cost of development of new water resources require a transition toward water systems that enhance conservation by adoption of efficient irrigation and application technologies, improving water delivery systems, and improving the efficiency of water allocation.

This can be done by a transition from systems of water. Pulido-Velazquez, F.A. Ward, in Competition for Water Resources, Cost Recovery Through Pricing: A US Example.

A requirement to recover costs through water pricing is common in the United States, especially for urban water utilities. However, in some cases, innovative incentive pricing programs have a potential to promote economically efficient water use patterns and provide a.

The way to allocate water efficiently is to get the prices right, but how to accomplish this is open to debate. Water pricing methods are sensitive to the social, physical, institutional, and political setting.

To assess the costs and benefits of a particular irrigation project, the pricing method must be tailored to local circumstances.
