[High Level Panel] To Price or not to Price: That is NOT the question. A high level dialogue

Date: April 13, 2015
Time: 17:00 - 19:00
Venue: DIB_B102, DAEGU - Inter-Burgo Hotel, B1F Grand Ballroom B
Session Code: T.SS.25

Water management has primarily been approached as an engineering problem and not an economic or social one. As such, pricing mechanisms, although widely debated, are not well understood or implemented, and the potential of better pricing for promoting sustainable water management and equitable access are not discussed at the highest political levels.
