Alternative Approaches to Efficiency Assessment and Economic Incentives
ISBN: 1 84057 588 3
Water regulation faces significant external factors which may mean that the existing regime is no longer fit for purpose. Climate change, changes to industry structure and demographic change are all factors that could lead to a need for either incremental or fundamental changes to the regulatory regime. The report considers: (i) areas where change may be needed; (ii) what the options are; (iii) experience from other sectors and internationally; and (iv) makes recommendations either for what changes to implement or what further analysis is needed to determine a way forward. The main report is supported by a series of case studies and analytical annexes.
