- Farmers' Perception of Groundwater Management Regimes PhD Scholarship
Groundwater is depleting rapidly in many parts of Australia due to climate change impacts and over-extraction. To manage the impact of over-extraction a 'cap & trade' system has been implemented. In a 'cap & trade' systems the extraction limits of individual farmers are controlled, even though they can participate in trading schemes to buy/sell water allocation rights. In this project the student will analyse the factors influencing the acceptability of a cap & trade system. Surveys will be carried out to understand irrigator's past water extraction behaviours, past experience with groundwater regulations and markets and barriers in successful implementation of cap & trase systems. Different adjustment options if face allocation reduction and factors affecting their participation in a groundwater market will be explored. Respondents will also be asked about their opinion on how allocations should be reduced, which will allow us to compare and contrast the fairness principles adopted by irrigators and regulators.
