The purpose of the present study is to analyze the long-term supply-demand planning of water resources in Taiwan under future conditions. Since last decade, the Water Resources Planning Commission (WRPC) of the Ministry Economic Affairs of Taiwan and the Taiwan Provincial Water Bureau (TPWB) have been conducting studies related to water supply and water demand in Taiwan. Some preliminary results are available. The present study will review and analyze these results, and continue the effort in data gathering. The ultimate objective is to integrate the available information to form a national master plan for water resources planning and management in Taiwan and, consequently, to develop a set of formal guidelines for updating the master plan. In the present study, projections of various regional water demands for industry, agriculture and public water supply under future conditions are needed. The projections are based upon existing historical records and the master plan of development in Taiwan.
