Game theory and policymaking in natural resources and the environment by Ariel Dinar( Book )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book includes chapters by experts from developing and developed countries that apply game theory to issues in natural resources and the environment. The focus in the book is clearly on applications that have policy relevance and that could lead to establishment of policy dialogue. The book objective is to demonstrate the usefulness of game theory in policy making at various levels, and for various aspects related to natural resources and the environment. In that respect, the proposed book differs from existing books that focus on game theory applications. It is more policy oriented and aims to focus on a wide range of readers, who are not necessarily pure game theorists, but appreciate the potential game theory may bring to useful policy debates

Markets for water : potential and performance by K. William Easter( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Markets for Water: Potential and Performance dispels many of the myths surrounding water markets and gives readers a comprehensive picture of the way that markets have developed in different parts of the world. It is possible, for example, for a water market to fail, and for the transaction costs in water markets to be excessive. Too often water trading is banned because the water resources have been developed with public funds and the water agencies do not want to lose control over water. There is also a concern that poor farmers or households will be disadvantaged by water trading. These concerns about public resources and the poor are not very different from those that have been voiced in the past about land sales. The problem is that in many cases the poor already have limited access to resources, but this limit is not due to water trading. In fact, water trading is likely to expand the access to water for many small-scale farmers. Markets for Water: Potential and Performance provides an analytical framework for water market establishment. It develops the necessary conditions for water markets and illustrates how they can improve both water management and economic efficiency. Finally, the book gives readers an up-to-date picture of what we have learned about water markets in a wide range of countries, from the US to Chile and India
Evaluating water institutions and water sector performance by R. Maria Saleth( Book )

Modeling economic management and policy issues of water in irrigated agriculture by Ariel Dinar( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work presents models that characterize the relationships between quantity and quality of irrigation water application, and agricultural production and the environment. A comprehensive modeling approach addressing both the benefits of irrigation and the potential negative effects is introduced. Physical-biological concepts are combined with economic and engineering principles to demonstrate the usefulness of the model for analyzing various water management and policy issues. Decision makers on all levels should find the modeling approach interesting and useful in the management issues from
Handbook on climate change and agriculture by Robert O Mendelsohn( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the interaction between climate change and the agriculture sector. Agriculture is essential to the livelihood of people and nations, especially in the developing world; therefore, any impact on it will have significant economic, social and political ramifications. Scholars from around the world and from various fields have been brought together to explore this important topic. The contributions found here analyze direct agronomic effects, the economic impacts on agriculture, agricultural impacts on the economy, agricultural mitigation and farmer adaptation. The authors argue
Policy and strategic behaviour in water resource management by Ariel Dinar( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Water resource management throughout the world is a very complicated issue, involving various aspects and dimensions and a well-coordinated set of policies. A well-designed water policy is a multi-faceted concerted intervention, which could be specific to just one set of political and physical socio-economic conditions. A framework to analyse the interaction between policy design and implementation can assist in improving both of these in various physical, economic and political situations. This book focuses on the interaction between policy making and strategic behaviour of policy makers, wate

Measuring the impact of climate change on Indian agriculture by Ariel Dinar( Book )

16 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides information on a series of associated analyses done on how climate change impacts on the agricultural system in India. The analysis features the Ricardian approach which compares agricultural outcomes across farms under different climate conditions. Following an introduction, Chapter 2 provides an extensive literature review that includes studies addressing climate change impacts on sectors other than agriculture. In Chapter 3 several Global Change Models (GCMs) are employed to provide a range of temperature and rainfall values that may result from predicted changes in carbon dioxide levels in the future. Results from these GCM models are used later for simulation of Ricardian models ' results. Each of the Ricardian studies emphasize a different methodology. The pooled data analysis (Chapter 4) examines long run response of farms to climate by Indian farming districts. The year by year analysis (Chapter 5) explains annual fluctuations in climate sensitivity by using regressions of a cross section of Indian agricultural districts for several years. This analysis measures how climate sensitivity varies from year to year in response to several variables, including prices and weather. The climate-technology study (Chapter 6) of Indian districts explores the role endogenous technology plays on farmer ' s climate sensitivity. The analysis examines whether technology has altered climate sensitivity and whether climate change might alter technical change

The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) : an early history of unanticipated outcomes by Ariel Dinar( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, countries took up the difficult task of finding a common approach that would slow down the build-up of greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere and delay changes to the planet's climate. A widespread concern among many of the participants in the newly formed United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change was that the emission reductions needed to significantly affect climate change would cost so much that it could jeopardize the chances of a coordinated international solution. To address this concern, several flexible mechanisms were designed, including the CDM. While many applaud the CDM, others are concerned with its performance and achievements, and whether or not it will be continued beyond 2012. Critics argue, among other things, that it has not delivered on the sustainable development objective for which it was established and that projects are unevenly distributed, both geographically and sectorally. Much analysis is available on CDM, but very little comprehensive analysis, addressing various aspects of CDM is available. With a major decision for its continuation, a multi-dimensional analysis would be needed. This book is about the economic assessment of certain (not certain) CDM performances, and its future sustainability and trajectory
Factors affecting levels of international cooperation in carbon abatement projects by Ariel Dinar( )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Clean Development Mechanism, a provision of The Kyoto Protocol, allows countries that have pledged to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to gain credit toward their treaty obligations by investing in projects located in developing (host) countries. Such projects are expected to benefit both parties by providing low-cost abatement opportunities for the investor-country, while facilitating capital and technology flows to the host country. This paper analyzes the Clean Development Mechanism market, emphasizing the cooperation aspects between host and investor countries. The analysis uses a dichotomous (yes/no) variable and three continuous variants to measure the level of cooperation, namely the number of joint projects, the volume of carbon dioxide abatement, and the volume of investment in the projects. The results suggest that economic development, institutional development, the energy structure of the economies, the level of country vulnerability to various climate change effects, and the state of international relations between the host and investor countries are good predictors of the level of cooperation in Clean Development Mechanism projects. The main policy conclusions include the importance of simplifying the project regulation/clearance cycle; improving the governance structure host and investor countries; and strengthening trade or other long-term economic activities that engage the countries
