This product is a simulation of freshwater resource scarcity and economic development in mainland Asia. In the simulation, teams of students represent the countries of Bangladesh, China, India, Myanmar, Pakistan, and Vietnam and decide how to manage the rivers that cross the borders of these nation-states. The simulation uses a programmed Excel spreadsheet. Turn by turn, players must decide how to best manage competing demands created by population growth, agricultural production, industrialization, and hydroelectricity generation.

This package includes the Excel spreadsheet, simulation rules, initial instructions to players, and advice for teachers on how to run the simulation.
