Water Economics Class

This is a two-day course delivered by staff of the Economic Analysis Section and staff from other DWR offices and programs. The course covers basic micro- and macro-economic concepts as they relate to water. Supply and demand, pricing, scarcity and external impacts are explained. The course gives an important overview of most economic principles, theories, and methods, and covers many models used within the Department. Part of the class time will be spent discussing the DWR Economic Analysis Guidebook. Course topics range from demographic analysis and climate change risks to hydro-economic modeling.
