Expert Narration :: The concept of water markets and their attraction to economists was well established. Prof. quoted the salient examples to resonate the concept with the audience. He framed his lecture around agriculture. He emphasized on the real challenge around water policy in a country does not hinge on debate about the elegance of the market and its structure. Rather, he explained that the issue is more fundamental like the most sensible way to address water scarcity in a nation of enormous hydrological variability and to resist dabbling with resource allocation in an effort to address the concern about income distribution.
