Descripción
The Mediterranean region has an extensive hydraulic infrastructure and complex socio-economic interactions among water users. In this region, competition for water among urban, agricultural, industrial and environmental demands is strongest in times of water scarcity. Allocation of scarce water among multiple demands is a challenging task that requires careful analysis. Precipitation decreases may likely be translated into drought periods in most cases. Nevertheless water scarcity (the shortage of water resources to serve water demands) does not only depend on drought or precipitation deficits but on water management. Adaptation options depend on the strategic contingency planning and management decisions that affect the water resources systems. The risk management of water scarcity and drought depends on the level of water scarcity. Therefore an adequate diagnosis of the water scarcity level is essential to anticipate the possible solutions. This study proposes a methodology for drought risk management based on the evaluation of four indicators of water scarcity to be used to define the thresholds of risk management actions. Based on the definition of thresholds, the study proposes the implementation of risk management actions may that respond to each water scarcity situation
