"A general equilibrium approach to model water scarcity in Israel"
by Luckmann, Jonas, Khalid Siddig, Dorothee Flaig and Harald Grethe

Water is a very scarce resource in Israel. With fluctuating supplies and an increasing demand, the use of alternative water sources: reclaimed wastewater, brackish groundwater and desalinated seawater becomes more and more relevant. This paper analyses the economy wide effects of the increasing utilization of these alternative water sources. To account for the different production structures and usage options, we employ a single country Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model in which three different water activities produce differentiated water commodities. These water commodities are used as intermediate inputs in other production activities or are consumed by final users.

Keywords: CGE, water, wastewater reclamation, desalination, nesting structure, Israel
