  • ConclusionsReclaiming aplace for water • Not inclusion due to unsuitable methods • Lack of suitable definition of water • Definition of a suitable scale and Scope of Analysis • Expansion of concepts of Flow and Fund Water also as Ecological Fund • Better conceptualization change institutional arrangments.
  • ConclusionsWater andComplexity • MuSIASEM allows multi Scope-Spatial analysis • Comparability of Scales needed • Other methods complement analysisMetabolicPatterns • So-Called developed countries water use goes for Production processes (90%) • The paradox of agriculture dependence
