Exploring the world of Aqua Republica

Using serious gaming to improve water resource management

Countries around the world grapple with how to manage and share limited water resources. To help encourage sustainable water management, we developed a unique, not-for-profit serious game: Aqua Republica. While the world of Aqua Republica is fictitious, the water management challenges are real. The game utilises real world data to present participants with real life water management scenarios. Aqua Republica helps participants learn about the connection between and importance of water resources. In doing so, the game enables participants to gain hands on experience of integrated water resource management (IWRM).
