In this chapter we examine how water governance and demand management arrangements can be linked to economic instruments, such as water markets, to address the broad range of water reallocation problems that exist in many global contexts. The utilization of economic instruments is context-specific throughout the world and can take many forms. This chapter therefore lists the pros and cons of some more common instruments. While successfully combining regulatory and economic instruments is far from straightforward, policy-makers can learn from growing evidence of successful partnerships between these two approaches. It may be costly both in terms of political support and transaction investments to strip away existing arrangements in favour of more flexible and better-suited institutions to manage scarce water resources. However, it would be expected that ignoring the problems, and hoping they will resolve themselves, would be more harmful to private and public welfare outcomes in the long run.
