This paper describes a process used to investigate how Murray-Darling Basin communities are likely to be affected by future changes in water availability, be they climate or policy driven. The paper also outlines some of the key methodologies employed across two projects in rural New South Wales (NSW) to comprehensively understand the implications for communities and industries affected by these potential changes. An integrated opportunity and adaptation framework is also presented, highlighting the value of considering multiple water saving or adaptation actions to respond to a future with less water.
