Abstract

This chapter summarizes the ideas presented in this book by discussing the basic concepts and techniques of water demand modeling and has illustrated these through the reporting of case studies undertaken by IIASA in cooperation with several institutions from the IIASA National Member Organization countries. The most important idea discussed was that of demand itself, and more specifically, its application to water use. Thus, it has been stressed throughout that, all else being equal, farms, industrial enterprises, and individuals will choose to use less water when the price or cost per unit is high than they will when that cost is low.
