This chapter presents an overview of the survey data on the determinants of households’ water use and looks at the impacts of policy measures such as water pricing and appliance labelling. It examines the determinants of water-saving behaviour and investment in water-saving appliances and whether having to pay for water according to volume actually reduces consumption. The role of respondents’ environmental norms is also analysed.
