I am wondering how to run the WEAP in order to assess the water urban water demand and supply. I am currently assessing climate change impact on water demand and supply. Does WEAP can answer for this exercise?

Dear Ketsana,

I would recommend going through the exercises in the WEAP tutorial up to the demand side management exercise (perhaps supply side too, depending on how your city is receiving water supply). This will give you a good sense of WEAP's ability to model cities, including the disaggregations that can be made as well as demand side management.

However, if you're looking at climate change impacts, you may want to model these as changes of precipitation and demand within the catchments that feed your water supply. To this, I would go through the tutorial exercises up through the hydrology section.
