Management
CAPIM/PIRE Update
PIRE Retreat
•Driven by need to develop holistic approach to sustainably
manage diverse water resource issues.
•Focus on community learning and place-based solutions.
•Innovative, integrated resource frameworks that capture
social, economic, as well as environmental elements.
•Highly applicable to semi-arid climates.

PIRE-CAPIM Collaboration
UCI
• Center for Aquatic Pollution Identification and Management: based at
University of Melbourne
• New technologies to improve monitoring, identify priority pollutants, detect
sources of major pollutants and assist in management of pollution issues
• Experience with reclaimed water offset scheme- saved Melbourne Water $80

Australian Smart Water Fund for Water Quality
Offsets Framework
• Australian Smart Water Fund issued a bid for funding an IWRM
Framework based on Jacksons Creek Experiment
• Key stakeholders – Victorian Water Industry, regional partners, EPA, DEPI,
OLV, CAPIM, Local Government)
• PIRE partnered with CAPIM to respond to RFP

NSF PIRE-CAPIM Project Goal
Conduct integrated assessment of environmental, social, and economic
components of water management strategies in Jacksons Creek Watershed as a
foundation for understanding use of environmental offsets on a broader scale.
Key Questions:
1) What are the social and environmental impacts of the current offset scenarios
in Jacksons Creek?
2) What are optimal strategies for achieving net positive societal, economic,
and environmental benefits in the watershed (and what are their lessons)?
3) What are impediments/opportunities to applying such strategies to other
locations (e.g. Southern California)?

Slide #9
Options for Capturing Value
Traditional
Willingness to Pay
• Standard, contingent value approach
• Limited in terms of value capture
Place-based,
Intrinsic Value
• Designed to capture intrinsic value of cultural,
historic, and ecological assets
• Community generated list of assets produces
ranked list of preferences
Interactive, Game
Theory
• Workshop participants engage in WTP exercise
based on interactive, game theoretic model
• Consequences to WTP decisions are immediate
