    Project Description

    Hydrological models contain technical information concerning water catchment and allocation. Multi-regional, dynamic computable general equilibrium (CGE) models contain information on linkages between regions and industries. This project will embed a hydrological model in an Australian CGE model, thereby creating a tool for analysing the regional and industrial impacts of water-related scenarios. The hydrological part of the model will concentrate initially on the Murray-Darling Basin. The hydrology-enriched CGE model will make a significant contribution to debate on water reform issues. It will be extended to examine urban-rural water allocation issues arising from urban growth pressures.
