The Environmental Values of NSW Rivers

As a component of the Water Reforms Process being undertaken in New South Wales, River Management Committees have been formed to advise government as to the allocation of water between alternative uses. To assist in the development of that advice, this project aims to estimate the values derived by the community from alternative river environments. Choice Modelling is being employed to generate estimates of values for riverine attributes that can be transfered between rivers and between circumstances. The project is being jointly funded by the New South Wales Environment Protection Authority and the Land and Water Resources Research and Development Corporation. The work is being undertaken jointly by Prof Bennett and Dr Mark Morrison of Charles Sturt University.

Because these papers present the results of work in progress, they should not be reproduced in part or in whole without the authorisation of the Project Leader, Professor Jeff Bennett.
