This publication provides practical examples of experience with economic instruments in water management mainly in European and other OECD countries. It assists in identifying appropriate instruments for the Latin American and Caribbean context and demonstrates the constraints and impediments to their introduction.
The publication consists of studies initiated by the Inter-American Development Bank to support discussions among participants in the "Regional Policy Dialogue" of Latin American countries. The main part of the publication has been contributed by Ecologic Institute.
