ENVIRONMENT, EQUITY AND WATERSHED MANAGEMENT
Kenneth A. Algozin and
1997 Annual meeting, July 27-30, Toronto, Canada from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)
This paper presents a methodology for incorporating environmental and social equity objectives in an economic analysis of watershed management. Empirical results indicate that restricting agricultural pollution notably increases farm costs. The equity objective also adversely affects economic efficiency, but the cost increase due to social equity is less significant.
