This project considered how existing water resource planning
and evaluation criteria should be altered in view of the potential for
human-induced climate change. Overall, the existing guidelines for
sensitivity analysis, scenario planning and decision analysis are
appropriate, but new applications and extensions of some criteria may be
warranted. These include nonstationarity, interest rates, and multiple
