Water resource economics

Economics helps develop market-based solutions that encourage efficient development and allocation of scarce water resources.

We use economic principles that crystallise the problem and combine this with an in-depth understanding of the operational, regulatory and behavioural factors that influence water allocation.  We work with engineers, scientists, lawyers and market researchers to make sure that proposed solutions are technically feasible.

Frontier has contributed to government policy papers considering ways to create sustainable water trading regimes. And we have advised companies on the commercial advantages and disadvantages of proposed changes.
