Short summary
We assess the sustainability of planned water uses in complex mesoscale river basins by modeling water demand and availability under climatic and anthropogenic changes. We present an analysis through indicators that relate to water management goals. The impacts of climate projections on both water availability and demand question the water allocations and environmental constraints currently planned for the coming decades. This work brings an essential long-term perspective to water sharing plans.
