“You have to make it profitable for the farmer to use less water,” says economist David Zetland, introducing a chapter called ‘Food and Water’ from his recent book, The End of Abundance.

He argues that food shortages and water shortages are both caused by prices that are too low or policies that block trade from surplus to deficit areas. We need to retool institutions that govern water supply and use, that were designed in a context when water was abundant.

David will discuss this (And related topics) in TheWaterChannel’s upcoming webinar on September 28, titled ‘Water and Food: Agricultural Flows and Water Markets.’ To register, send us your full name and email id at This email address is being protected from spambots.
