Abstract

Conflicts involving water resources are pervasive and the costs of the conflicts themselves and attempts to resolve them represent a substantial social investment. Several mechanisms are used to resolve water disputes: litigation, market transactions, political deal-making, and alternative dispute resolution techniques. This article examines the types of costs and benefits associated with resolving water disputes and proposes several criteria to be used in evaluating the economic aspects of dispute resolution mechanisms.
