Property systems and conservation of instream flows: Israel and the Western United States compared

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

What is the connection between the property regime under which the law allocates water, and the degree of protection afforded by the law to public, so-called “instream uses,” of water? More concretely, to what extent is it true that a system of water law based on private property tends to impede protection of water-related natural values, while public ownership facilitates such conservation?.
