Details

This project developed and explored 4 plausible future scenarios and a reference scenario for the water environment for England and Wales through to 2050.

The scenarios are a strategic tool that can be used to investigate future uncertainties associated with water management in a coherent and consistent manner. The project’s findings will help water and environment planners to help ‘future proof’ water management strategies and policies.
