INVESTIGATING THE MECHANISMS OF THE LOCAL WATER MARKET FORMATION AND ITS ROLE IN URBAN AND REGIONAL PLANNING WITH EMPHASIS ON KASHAFROOD BASIN
Today, the development of market-based allocation mechanisms is raised as a sustainable, flexible and efficient way in managing water resources and redistributing them among different uses. However, the market’s ability to efficiently and optimally allocate water depends on the establishment of the specific conditions of the market and the commodity exchange (water). Water, in addition to being the source of life, is raised today as an economic commodity. One of the most important features of any economic commodity is its ability to be exchanged and traded in the market. According to the Law on Implementation of General Policies of Principle (44) of the Constitution, Article 142 of the Fifth Development Plan Act and also legal obligations, communicated strategies and policies and the need to employ appropriate economic tools to promote the economic value of water are better implemented through strengthening and developing local and regional water markets and providing a non-discriminatory, efficient and transparent environment for water exchange in the local market system. This study aims to explain the theoretical foundations of the local water market with emphasis on supply and demand management in the water sector (Kashafrood basin).
