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 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 the analysis, including economic, social, and environmental evaluation of development alternatives aided by application of mathematical modelling techniques, to generate input for planning, design, and operational decisions.

In the years 1976 and 1977 IIASA initiated a concentrated research effort focusing on modelling and forecasting of water demands. Our interest in this topic derives from the generally accepted realization that these fundamental aspects of water resources management have not been given due consideration in the past.

This report, the seventh in the IIASA water demand series, consists of a selected annotated bibliography on water demand literature which came about as a result of IIASA's study on water demands.
