Computable general equilibrium (CGE) models offer a method of studying the role of water resources and water scarcity in the context of international trade. This chapter reviews the literature on water-related CGE modeling by providing a survey that focuses on the implications of different modeling techniques of water resource. We differentiate between models that explicitly model water as a factor of production and those that model water as an implicit factor of production. Within the category of studies that model water explicitly we further differentiate between models that assume a high degree of substitution between water and primary factors and those that assume a low degree of substitution. We also differentiate between regional and global models. Further, we provide information on the type of analysis the model was used for.

Abstract

Computable general equilibrium (CGE) models offer a method of studying the role of water resources and water scarcity in the context of international trade. This chapter reviews the literature on water-related CGE modeling by providing a survey that focuses on the implications of different modeling techniques of water resource. We differentiate between models that explicitly model water as a factor of production and those that model water as an implicit factor of production. Within the category of studies that model water explicitly we further differentiate between models that assume a high degree of substitution between water and primary factors and those that assume a low degree of substitution. We also differentiate between regional and global models. Further, we provide information on the type of analysis the model was used for.
