Abstract: South Africa faces particular challenges in balancing the pressing need for social and economic development, while also protecting water resources to secure viable options for future generations. These challenges are also expressed in the area of water quality, where the impacts of developments on the quality of water resources have direct implications for delivering water of acceptable quality for household, urban, industrial, mining, agricultural and recreational purposes. The scenarios approach leads to a better understanding of key drivers and uncertainties in the water sector. This promotes the effective deployment of environmental goods and services towards social and economic development, while allowing for the comprehensive management of environmental risks and ensuring environmental sustainability. The development and use of scenarios, in an appropriate manner, empowers society to participate more effectively in water governance
