Abstract

The Water Futures and Solutions Initiative (WFaS) is a cross-sector, collaborative global project whose objective is to improve human well-being through water security. To that end, it uses applied systems analysis to develop scientific evidence and identify water-related policies and management practices consistently across scales and sectors. The approach adopted is a stakeholder-informed, scenario-based assessment of water resources and water demand that uses ensembles of state-of-the-art socioeconomic and hydrological and climate models. These are used to examine possible futures, and test solutions that are not only feasible today but can be sustainable and robust across a range of possible futures and associated uncertainties. This report aims to present new knowledge on the current situation and water futures of Asia.
