"Clean Water"
by Arkolakis, Costas, Conor Walsh and Anton Yang

In this study, we aim to investigate the economic implications of limited access to clean water and the impact of water infrastructure on household welfare. To achieve this objective, we develop a unified spatial framework that models the global supply and demand of water, taking into account the interaction between spatial economic activities and water supply.

To capture environmental factors and various water flows, we examine the motion of water and leverage high-resolution observations from NASA's gravity field and topography measurements to assess water availability and its use in different economic activities across different locations. This approach overcomes the challenge of integrating comprehensive water flows and states on a global scale that interact with economic activities.

Our economic analysis considers both changes in household income, and associated water use in consumption and production, as well as water availability; a rival resource shared by many nearby regions. By addressing the limitations of oversimplified demand and production characteristics, this study offers a more robust understanding of the complex relationship between water access and economic development.
