Interest in water resources systems has been a critical part of resources and environment related research at IIASA since its inception. As countries undertake more and larger projects to meet their increasing water use, the physical limitations of natural water supplies are becoming apparent. This in turn requires an increase in the degree of detail and sophistication of analysis, including economic, social, and environmental evaluation of development alternatives aided by application of mathematical modelling techniques to generate inputs for planning, design, and operational decisions.

Workshop on Modelling of Water Demands, held by the Resources and Environment Area of IIASA (Task 1, Regional Water Demand and Management) from 17 to 21 January 1977, was attended by 29 people from 14 countries. The proceedings, after an introduction outlining the overall framework of IIASA's studies on modelling and forecasting of water demands, comprises invited papers and reviews that together provide a good overview of what is understood by "water demand analysis" in most of the IIASA NMO countries.
