Abstract: Integrated water resources management is a comprehensive and coordinated approach to the development and management of water, addressing its management as a resource and within the framework of providing water services. Densu River Basin was selected as first priority basin to undergo integrated water resources management activities in Ghana. Using a plan horizon up to year 2020, an assessment of water availability to meet future water demand in the basin was carried out using a computer-based model for scenario analyses of different water resource development choices and to establish their consequences. The scenarios analysed included impact of climate change, improvement in water delivery system losses, inter-basin water transfer and creation of a new storage facility in the upstream section of the river system.
