Quantifying the Economic Value of Water in Regions with Competition between Mining and other Water Users (Chile - Aconcagua)

This project is developing the hydro climate data sets and hydro-economic models (based on the WEAP software) to quantify the total and marginal value of water to different sectors and to the region as a whole. The sensitivity of these values to changes in climate, regulation and mine water management options is explored with the model (PhD of Juan Sebastian Ossa Moreno and associated Masters Projects).
