Methods

Increasing challenges in the field of water management have resulted in the development and use of a wide variety of different methodologies for problem solving. FutureWater has strong links with both the academic world and water policy makers which enables us to make use of state-of-the-art scientific methodologies and techniques.

The key to sustainable water management is the transformation of data to information, and information to knowledge, which in turn leads to the development of policies. FutureWater, frequently in conjunction with academic partners, is continuously developing methodologies to facilitate these transformations in order to improve policy formulation.

FutureWater has a pro-active approach to research where we use models to investigate the variety of problems and challenges in water management and emphasize possibilities for the future.

Obviously investigations into sustainable future water management are only possible if we understand water management in both the past and present.
