Following the successful 1st and 2nd International Conferences on Water Economics, Statistics, and Finance, the International Water Association (IWA) Specialist Group of Statistics and Economics in coordination with the Water Economics Group of the University of Valencia organize the 3rd International Conference on Water Economics, Statistics, and Finance.
It is well known that water is of vital importance for the fulfillment of human needs and, hence, an essential goal is to increase the proportion of the population with access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation. On the other hand, climate change and scarcity of water resources and deteriorating quality of water are becoming an effective constraint to economic development. The efficiency of supply and distribution of water for household, water pricing and the provision of services by suppliers are also considered as key aspects. All these challenges require the integration of Statistics and Economics issues.
In this context, the 3rd International Conference on Water Economics, Statistics, and Finance is organized as a platform to exchange scientific and professional experiences between academics and practical water industry managers.
