Abstract
Purpose: The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the need for a trading place for water. The aim of the thesis is to present a number of criteria needed for water trade to progress in a larger scale and in order for futures markets for water to develop. Since trading places for water barely exists, the thesis will fill a gap in current research of the area. It will further provide a basic understanding for industry people, scholars and researchers on how the water market will develop and progress in the coming years. Methodology: We have used a comparative approach and compared different cases in a qualitative manner. From out theoretical framework we identified 10 criteria we believe to be necessary for trade. The criteria are... (More)

Methodology: We have used a comparative approach and compared different cases in a qualitative manner. From out theoretical framework we identified 10 criteria we believe to be necessary for trade. The criteria are verified against our empirical results. In order to analyze our gathered information we have chosen to create two matrixes to serve as a framework and create an overview. Theories: We have chosen to use trade theories as well as theories of commodities suited for trade and futures trading theories Empirical Results: Our empirical results are gathered from six different components. Three of them are commodities sharing similar characteristics to water, and the other three are areas where water trade occurs. Conclusion: We have concluded that all the criteria are more or less important in order for successful water trade to arise but the most significant proved to be demand and supply. (Less)
