households about their willingness to pay additional household expenses caused by the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme
(CPRS) proposed by the Australian government.
The Contingent Valuation Method (CVM), a widely used non-market
valuation technique, was applied. Results of the study show there is a positive demand to mitigate climate change in Australia
resulting from a wish to avoid climate change. Households’ willingness to pay (WTP) for climate change was, however,
significantly curbed as households was uncertain about...

Collective Action for Water Harvesting Irrigation in Lerma-Chapala Basin, Mexico
Provedor de dados: 31

Water and watersheds are difficult to separate for management purposes. Providing irrigation as a supplement to rainfall for crop
production requires considerable collective action at the watershed level to mobilize labor and other resources, as well as to make
decisions and implement the distribution of benefits. Small- scale water harvesting irrigation systems in Mexico have endured for
centuries. They now face considerable challenges with changes in the ejido property rights over land and water, the growing
importance of alternative sources of livelihoods, and increasing scarcity and competition for water within the river basins. Two
case studies of water harvesting irrigation systems in the Lerma-Chapala Basin illustrate the response of communities to...

DEVELOPMENT OF INSTITUTIONS AND THEIR INNOVATIONS TO REDUCE
PERMANENTLY THE EFFECTS OF DROUGHTS ON AGRICULTURE (WITH IMPLICATION

Drought is a natural hazard that cannot be avoided significantly within the present level of scientific development. Studies and
experiments to overcome drought have not yet reached the stage of development where the world can depend on the available
scientific technology to avoid droughts. As a result, both scientifically developed and the developing nations face the problem
equally. The recent droughts of the Sahel and Northeast Africa and the current drought of the Great Plains of the United States
show how diverse the distribution of the problem is and the range of possible effects that might be sustained in the poor regions of
