I was pleased participate in sessions (37 and 42A) on water markets in the Western US at the ARWA.*
"Turning Blue into Green" [MP3] and [web] by Chris Corbin
"Developing a Price Index for Water Rights in the American West" [MP3] and [PDF] by Matthew Payne (with Mark Griffin Smith and Clay J. Landry)
"Suggestions for Enhancing Water Markets in New Mexico" [MP3] and [PPTX] by Scott Armstrong
"Stakeholder Perspectives on Allocating Water by Auction in Arizona" [MP3] and [PDF presentation and notes] by Taylor Shipman (with Mark Myers)
Here's an MP3 of the Q & A with that panel.
"A Tale of Marketing Irrigation Water: California's PVID and IID" [MP3] and [PDF] by me!
Bottom Line: A lot of great insights on the different institutions affecting water marketing!
* Speaking of markets, here's a great post on all-in-auctions written by Abraham Abhishek (Program Coordinator at MetaMeta).
