With the pressures on water resources from climate change and a growing population, matching water supply and demand is increasingly challenging and represents a real risk to society and the environment. Under the National Framework for Water Resources (2020), each water resources region must produce a water resources plan. These plans must consider how the region will be resilient to a range of uncertainties and future scenarios to 2050 and beyond, identifying the best value options for society and the environment. There are five regional water resources groups: North, East, Southeast, West Country, and West. Each group is made up of water companies and other stakeholders.
