Abstract

[Extract] This paper explores the non-commercial factors influencing farmers' decision making in the context of the recently implemented Water Sharing Plans (WSP) in the Namoi Valley of New South Wales. In line with the governments water reform goals, the WSP were introduced to rectify an over allocation of groundwater resources. The required amount of entitlement reduction varied across the valley, according to the existing amount of over allocation, and has resulted in some licence holders losing up to 94% of their entitlements. To manage this degree of reduction most licence holders have to make some kind of decision about how to deal with it. This could be by purchasing or selling land or water.
