Abstract

In this book we consider the tradeable property rights framework as a method of allocating water. Our objectives are to explain why such an approach can improve aspects of New Zealand's current water allocation framework to establish the appropriate set of institutional arrangements for a tradeable rights framework to operate effectively and to examine what may influence the value of tradeable water rights.
