Mike Young holds a Research Chair in Energy, Water and Environmental the University of Adelaide and was the Founding Executive Director of the University of Adelaide’s Environment Institute. He is a fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia, and is a Distinguished Fellow of the Australian Agricultural and Resource Economics Society.
As a result of an Australian Government endowment, each year Harvard University appoints one person to the Whitlam and Malcolm Fraser Chair in Australian Studies at Harvard University. In recognition of his contribution to the development of water policy in Australia, Mike was appointed to this Chair at Harvard University for the 2013/14 academic year. While at Harvard, he taught a course on transformational environmental policy reform. An Earthscan book on this topic is nearing completion. In 2014, he was awarded a Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship at its Bellagio Centre in Italy.
Mike is best known for his contribution to the development of robust natural resource and environmental policies. In recent times, his research has focused on the development of market-based approaches to the resolution of water scarcity and quality issues and the development of policies likely to reduce greenhouse gas emisisions. He played a critical role in the consideration of water reform options for the Murray Darling Basin and, recently, developed blueprints for the transformation of water right and abstraction systems in the UK and the USA.
Frequently called upon to provide keynote addresses, internationally, Mike is known for his capacity to integrate biophysical and economic information to present the case for innovative policy reforms that catalyze change. A specialist in the development of paradigm shifts, he is regularly called upon to review reports proposing a shift in policy direction and/or investment strategy.
For three years, he worked on the integration of agricultural and environmental policies with the OECD. He also played a key role in establishing Australia’s National Land and Water Resources Audit. In the past, Mike has led teams that developed frameworks for the introduction of a greenhouse gas emission trading system in Australia; fishery management in NSW; biodiversity conservation on private land; and for rangeland management in NSW, SA and the NT.
Mike led the Global Water Partnership’s Technical Committee
work on water pricing and on water sharing. In 2010/11, he led the water component of a UNEP study on opportunities to pursue green growth strategies throughout the world. Mike served on the University of Alberta’s Water Initiative External Advisory Board and prior to that on the Alberta Ingenuity Water Research Centre’s International Reference Panel. He has been a member of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Water Security.
In 2006, Mike was awarded Australia’s premier water research prize – the Land and Water Australia Eureka Award for Water Research. The award recognizes the significant contribution of his research with the late Jim McColl to the development of improved water entitlement, allocation and trading systems in Australia.
In 2013, he spent several months with the OECD’s Environment Directorate in Paris working on a checklist for the improvement of water abstraction regimes and, in the Netherlands, on options for the management of water scarcity challenges.
The OECD has recommended that the Dutch Government adopt the framework he developed and is recommending that all governments make use of his checklist. In the USA, irrigators in Nevada’s Diamond Valley are in the process of trialling the unbundling of prior appropriation water rights in a manner consistent with the blueprint he recommended for the improvement of water management arrangements in the western United States of America.
Professor Young is an Honorary Professor with the University College London and, in 2012 spent several months in the United Kingdom working on water policy options for the Department of Environment, Food and Regional Affairs. This included consideration of ways to significantly reform water abstraction licensing and pricing arrangements.
Prior to joining the University of Adelaide, Mike spent 30 years with CSIRO where he established their Policy and Economic Research Unit with offices in Adelaide, Canberra and Perth.
In 2003, Mike was awarded a Centenary Medal “for outstanding service through environmental economics”. In 2009, he was named South Australian of the Year in the Environment Category.
Examples of Australian policy proposals that have been adopted by government and resulting directly from research that he has led include
• The total reform of water pastoral land leasing arrangements in Australia’s Northern Territory, South Australia and New South Wales;
• The reform of kangaroo harvesting licensing arrangements in New South Wales;
• The conversion of fishery licenses into shares in New South Wales;
• The shift in the focus of biodiversity protection policies in Australia to ones that involve the provision of incentives for the conservation of biodiversity on private land;
• The unbundling of Australia’s water licences and the resultant development of an efficient trading system;
• The Australian Government decision to transfer responsibility for the administration of the Murray Darling Basin’s water resources to an independent expertise-based authority.
Mike Young’s curriculum vitae lists more than 250 publications. He has been Associate Editor of Ecological Economics and is a member of thirteen editorial boards. He holds degrees in economics and agricultural science. More information is available at www.myoung.net.au
