A strategy that considers the relationship and anticipates a range of possible future scenarios for water supply and demand uncertain futures might be the wisest approach for water resource managers to address uncertain futures in water supply. The uncertainty of water supply has been the primary focus of such efforts primarily due to the potential for long-term drought and climate change. Water-demand estimating and forecasting have high levels of uncertainty, particularly in the longer time frame, and thus can also benefit from anticipatory governance. Integrated water resource planning is an approach that brings the uncertainty of water demand and supply into a common anticipatory governance framework.
