Label: Water stress
Short description: Water stress expressed as the ratio of mean annual water demand to availability, aggregated to basin level (0.2-0.4 medium water stress; >0.4 severe water stress).
Description: Water stress is a basin scale indicator of the mean annual water demand to availability ratio. This ratio gives an indication for the level of water stress experienced in the basin. Basins with a water demand to availability ratio above 0.2 are considered medium water stressed, basins with ratios above 0.4 are severely water stressed.
