Price of Water for Irrigation in Serbia
The Brief was prepared to support the development of the Irrigation Strategy of the Republic of Serbia.
It provides elements for a discussion around the legal framework on the price of water for irrigation and drainage in Serbia and it aims to serve as a starting point for developing a discussion on the price of irrigation water with various stakeholders in Serbia. It provides basic information on common approaches to irrigation water price formation and compares them to the legal approach and common practice in Serbia. It also compares prices of irrigation water in some European countries so as to discuss the extent to which water prices across Europe actually reflect water supply recovery costs as stipulated in the WFD.
