The CWPM includes people from varying disciplines including economics, law, agriculture and hydrogeology.

Projects undertaken by CWPM can draw on several disciplines or be constrained to a single disciplinary lens. Areas of particular strength include:

  • Assessing and designing the most effective means of managing environmental water demands.
  • Analysing the impacts of different water policy choices on different sectors, water users and taxpayers.
  • Designing water tariff regimes to meet particular ends, in both urban and irrigation settings.
  • Assessing the usefulness and attributes of water markets and trading mechanisms.
  • Managing urban water.
  • Formulating strategy in water utilities.
  • Understanding the nexus between science and policy.
