Abstract: Review of existing scenarios for water resources in Europe
In this report, existing scenarios on water use and water resources at the European scale are reviewed and assessed. The SCENES water scenarios might be as starting point for analysing futures changes in the availability and quality of water resources at catchment scale and to develop cost-effective adaptation and restoration strategies for freshwater ecosystems. However, the quantitative information on water availability and water use cannot be downscaled easily from European scale to local scale, but available figures should be used as indicative values for the direction and magnitude of future changes. Although this is a publically available deliverable it is primarily intended to provide a framework for water use scenario generation at the demonstration catchments.
