The management of water stress across Europe has traditionally focused on supply-side measures, while drought management has been characterized by crisis management measures. Driven by shifts in the study of vulnerability and risk that originated in the 1980s (Vargas and Paneque, 2017), and underpinned by global developments like the Yokohama Strategy for a Safer World (UN, 1994) and its successors, the last three decades have increasingly seen the adoption of strategies that shift the focus more on water demand management. In addition, there is increased emphasis on the need for a more proactive risk management approach against droughts, calling for a drought management approach articulated around the aspects of preparedness, crisis management and resilience building.
