This document briefly discusses the uses of qualitative and quantitative scenarios, then reviews the status of global water scenarios. It points out some of their major shortcomings: (i) the absence of scenarios that examine the combined impact of changing climate, land use and socio-economic factors on continental or global water resources; (ii) the lack of quantitative scenarios dealing with ecological issues; (iii) the weak treatment of water governance and water pricing issues.
