‘over-allocation’ in the Murray- Darling Basin into check. Not surprisingly, this has attracted criticism from several quarters,
usually on the basis that such mechanisms produce unnecessary hardship for rural communities. Set against this are the views of
many economists who have bemoaned the modest endeavours of governments to actively use water markets and the ongoing
proclivity of agencies to instead embark on public projects under the guise of water use efficiency (see, for example Watson
2008). This paper focuses specifically on water buyback and traces recent policy episodes in this context. The paper also offers

The Fire Management Program (FMP) of the Victorian Department of Natural Resources and Environment is responsible for the
prevention and suppression of fires on public land in the State of Victoria. This article reports on an economic evaluation of the
net benefits of these fire management activities for a representative year. The FMP is calculated to yield high net benefits to
Victoria from its investment in fire suppression and prevention, through a reduction in the value of agricultural, capital and forest
assets which would otherwise be lost to bushfires.

Next-Generation Biofuels: Near-Term Challenges and Implications for Agriculture

Achieving the U.S. goal to triple biofuel use by 2022 will depend on rapid expansion in cellulosic biofuels, and U.S. agriculture,
as a leading source of the Nation’s biomass, will play a significant role in this expansion. The U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency announced that the cellulosic biofuel mandate for 2010 would be reduced from 100 million gallons to 6.5 million gallons.
Blending and shipping constraints may encourage investors to turn away from cellulosic ethanol in favor of processes that yield
green fuels, more closely substitutable for fossil fuels.
