This paper puts forth a systematic approach to select the governmental actions that can ensure water quality based on the connection between governmental actions at present and in the future using Systems approach (Von Bertalanffy, 1968), SWOT analysis (Houben et al., 1999) and DPSIR framework (OECD, 2003). The proposed methodology under the ambit of systems approach employs: (i) SWOT analysis to identify the connections; and, (ii) DPSIR framework to quantify the connections using impact based indicators for connections between actions. The methodology has been tested using six governmental actions across four plausible future scenarios in Luzhi Town, a unique water village within Suzhou city, China.
