The core aim of the proposed book is to present the latest results of the relevant research, either in its pure theoretical aspects or in applied instances; such a book can serve as an excellent dissemination tool for highly specialized economics and management issues like those of the agricultural, water management, and environmental sector.
The book also aims to integrate knowledge, both across disciplines and between science, policy, and the public, regarding the way to obtain practical results within the water management economics. The use of new theories, technologies, models, methods, conceptual frameworks, techniques, and principles are emphasized. Both researchers and practitioners are invited to share their experiences and discuss novel approaches to Water Management Policies, institutions, technologies, governance issues , Characteristics and evolution of Water demand in Agriculture, Water Resource Management quantity management, quality management, climate change , Economic instruments market, pricing and others , Modeling water use by irrigation Mathematical Programming Models, Simulation Models, , Modeling water use in Agriculture and Forestry diffuse pollution, green and blue water, virtual water , Governance, conflict resolution and multicriteria management models and the interconnections between such areas, considering the multi-level context and trying to provide insights beyond the individual cases.
Extensive case studies of effective applications within agriculture, natural resources and the environment can well contribute to the overall objectives of the book. As the book will introduce economic issues of water management in agriculture, water resources management and will demonstrate agricultural and environmental case studies of these with beneficial results and implementations in an edited book, it is expected to attract the interest of many academic researchers and practicing professionals of agriculture, water management and water resources based issues around the world.
Academics and students will be able to use such a book as a state-of-the-art reference book for agricultural, environmental and economics applications of water management. As the techniques applied in these applications can be extended and applied to other areas as well, researchers from disciplines like economics and marketing can gain as well. Water Management institutes and stakeholders of different levels can especially gain from practices and experiences applied by their counterparts in different parts of the world, thus improving their effectiveness.
