We believe information about products and services that could benefit people should be made available to consumers to help them make informed decisions about their health care. Therefore, we try to provide accurate and reliable information by working with different fact-checkers to review articles for factual accuracy, relevance, and timeliness. A team of qualified and experienced fact-checkers rigorously reviewed our content before publishing it on our website. At TnHealth, we rely on the most current and reputable sources cited in the text and listed at the bottom of each article. Content is fact-checked after it has been edited and before publication.

SIDA/SEI – The World Water Scenarios

The World Water Scenarios were developed as part of the process of building a World Water Vision, an initiative of the World Water Council. The scenarios, however, should be distinguished from the Vision, a description of which which is available at the link # 4, given below.

A first set of three global scenarios to initiate consultations on a World Water Vision were developed by the Scenario Development Panel at meetings held in September and November 1998 and written by Gilberto Gallopin and Frank Rijsberman. The Scenario Development Panel consists of: Ismail Serageldin (chair), Frank Rijsberman (alternate chair), Gilberto Gallopin (secretary), Jacob Adesida, Joe Alcamo, Nadezhda Gaponenko, Peter Gleick, Jerry Glenn, Stela Goldenstein, Allen Hammond, David Seckler, Igor Shiklomanov, Jill Slinger, Sree Sreenath, Ken Strezpek, Isabel Valencia, and Rusong Wang.
