No one can know what the future will hold, but the water sector is in the unenviable position of having to plan for the long term despite significant uncertainties over water availability and demand.

A single view of the future will be wrong. However, a perspective based on carefully worked scenarios is more likely to include the range of possibilities, against which a strategy can be tested, its strengths understood and risks and resilience assessed. This is the approach which experience has shown is a good starting point for formulating a strategy which can then be adaptively managed.
