Abstract

This chapter utilises the ecosystem services framework to understand the consequences of change in forest ecosystem functions and water-related implications. Using a scenario analysis, the chapter explores the likely changes in attributes of forest-water systems (and associated services) that will translate to exogenous impacts, and their consequences in the future. The narrative provides a foundation for the analysis of management options and policy responses that will be discussed in Chapters 6 and 7. Ultimately, these responses are likely to affect the drivers of change and thus highlight the interconnectedness of coupled forest-water systems.
