Abstract

We report progress on a novel effort to develop a unified framework for constructing scenarios for water resource management. The framework comprises five iterative phases: scenario definition, scenario construction, scenario analysis, scenario assessment, and risk management. While the scenario framework can be applied to most water resource applications, we place particular emphasis on semiarid environments and forces not typicallyconsidered in the traditional water management process such as unforeseen changes in government institutions, or second-order effects of climate change on environmental systemsThemain objective of scenario development for water resources is to inform policy-makersabout the implications of various water management strategies. In addition, scenarioscanconsider the possible effects of external drivers, such as changes in political institutions, or large-scale environmental change that may be especially important in developingcountries.
