TIE Talk with Sean Cash

March 13, 2013 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

| Free

Our  March TIE Talk is entitled “Who values clean water more – the rich or the poor? Evidence from Queretaro, Mexico.”  This talk will investigate the demand for water supply improvements in Queretaro, Mexico. Professor Cash will discuss a recent study, where data were collected from in-person surveys of over 800 households in both established neighborhoods and in informal settlements that do not have private water services. This paper is one of the first studies in Mexico that demonstrates that residents are willing to pay a significant amount of money for water supply improvements, and also provides some of the first evidence from Latin America that residents from informal settlements are willing to pay a considerable proportion of their income for reliable water services.
