Valuation of water

 Issue Description

Water is increasingly a scarce resource. International agreements such as the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation, the Water Framework Directive, etc. recognize that water is an economic good. A proposals of valuing water as a mineral asset and, in case this is not feasible using payments for water rights as proxy has been put forwards during the update of the 1993 SNA.
