New publication : L’eau entre réglementation et marché (water between regulation and markets), edited by Max Falque, Editions Johanet, Paris, 2014

Water management tools include on the one hand the regulation of water abstractions and wastewater discharges and, on the other, pricing mechanisms. With a view to triggering a debate on the long-term management of water resources, this book explores the trading of water permits as a means to ensure an equitable access to water resources, as well as the protection of these resources against pollution.
