Evaluating Economic Policy Instruments for Sustainable Water Management in Europe

Review of the Assessment Framework and Toolbox
The EPI-Water project aims to understand how Economic Policy Instruments (EPIs) succeed or fail in directing water resources to uses that reflect social value and priorities.
