According to Rabobank, unless public and private investments are made in better water management throughout the world, a 40 percent global water deficit is expected by 2030. More robust water markets will lead to more economically efficient water allocations and investment, but government intervention is needed in order to control unintended costs to society. Continued expansion in the use of transparent water markets will lead to more economically efficient water allocations, encouraging needed investment and better water management.
