Plausible future scenarios for the water environment to 2030 and 2050

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.
