For the past decade much attention has been placed on assessing the impacts of climate change on the world's water resources. These assessments have focused on the hydrologic impacts or the supply side. IIASA's Water Resources Project has played a role in these international activities. This study takes a broader look: it analyzes the combined impact of population growth, economic development, and climate change on regional water resources vulnerability. Vulnerability is assessed by examining a region's demand-supply balance. The work does not perform a static analysis, but forecasts water supply and demand on the basis of various scenarios for the time horizon to 2025 when most of the global changes involved may have a significant impact.
