Water scarcity and affordability in urban water pricing

What is it about?

The objective of this work is to design a water rate model that internalizes the scarcity value of water and at the same time improves social concerns such as equity and affordability.

Why is it important?

We show that the implementation of the proposed water rate creates incentives to improve water use sustainability and equity among users.
