The growing scarcity of fresh and clean water is among the most important issues facing civilization in the 21st century. Despite the growing attention to a chronic, pernicious crisis in world's water resources our ability to correctly assess and predict global water availability, use and balance is still quite limited. An attempt is documented here in modeling global world water resources using system dynamics approach. Water resources sector (quantity and quality) is integrated with five…

TLDR
A number of different water-related scenarios and their implications on the global water balance are discussed, including two extreme scenarios (business as usual and unlimited desalination) and a set of more moderate and realistic scenarios (named "Conservation").
A system dynamics simulation model for the assessment of water resources in Sri Lanka
Ability to accurately predict water availability in a country is vital in planning its water resources development activities. Traditional approach used is based on a water balance and a demand

Water resource management through systemic approach: The case of Lake Bracciano
TLDR
A System Dynamics model is proposed, employed in a real case study regarding the city of Rome and one of its water reserves, the Bracciano Lake, for the evaluation of different strategies and policies to reduce environmental impacts, considering different climatic and context scenarios.

Modeling the water consumption of Singapore using system dynamics
Water resources are essential to life, and in urban areas, the high demand density and finite local resources often engender conditions of relative water scarcity. To overcome this scarcity,

Solutions for a water-short world.
TLDR
A Blue Revolution is required now to conserve and manage freshwater supplies as well as place more emphasis on assuring the supply and management of freshwater resources and on providing sanitation as part of development and public health programs.
The massive water scarcity now threatening Africa - why isn't it being addressed?
TLDR
Continual population growth in Africa cause water consumption levels to go so high that many countries have already reached the water stress level and many engineers and economists do not accept the existence of water barrier.
