RFF Water Policy Set

Water is one of the most critical and contested resource issues of the 21st century. From its earliest days, water policy has been a fundamental part of RFF's research program, with a focus on assessing the performance of policy instruments for improving water quality both in the U.S. and internationally. This collection of nine books includes landmark works by John Krutilla, Alan Kneese, and Kenneth Frederick--all selected for their relevance to contemporary challenges in water management.

The RFF Library Collection brings back landmark books published by Resources for the Future throughout its nearly 60-year history as the pre-eminent research institution devoted exclusively to environmental issues.
