Presented by UC Davis Agriculture and Resource Economics
California water users are facing new regulation under the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA). Local water managers are considering water markets as a potential approach for achieving sustainability targets. However, water is a non-traditional resource, and water markets need to be designed with an eye toward protecting communities and the environment. Join us for a discussion on groundwater markets and market design with economists Dr. David Sunding (UC Berkeley) and Dr. Matt Fienup (California Lutheran University). What is the value in trading, and how can we effectively design markets for the well-being of all?
