Water stress in Europe

Water stress occurs when there is not sufficient water available to meet the demands of the environment and of the water-dependent socio-economic functions, in terms of quantity or quality. Water stress is a general term combining drought, quantitative scarcity, water quality and water accessibility. Drought reflects the shortage of water due to short or long-term precipitation deficits, while water stress is a combined effect of drought and socio-economic pressures. Water stress occurs when the water demand is higher than the availability of water in the environment.
