Most of the literature addresses water policy as an issue related to environmental conservation. However, water remains a major productive factor, particularly in agriculture. This role is made even more prominent in a context characterised by economic crises, increased competition across markets and climate change. It is also emphasised by the fossil energy limitations, which also highlights the water-energy nexus as a key resource issue for economic viability.
The change in needs not only requires a change in perspective, but also points at the need to study institutional innovations and economic evaluation instruments able to better assess policy performance and provide evidence for improvemed design.
