Abstract

This report provides a detailed overview of the development of an integrated tool for evaluation conditions of water stress, to be referred to as the Aquastress Water Stress Matrix (AWSM). This tool combines a selection of information relevant for water management decision making, and has at its core, a composite index of water stress, here referred to as the Aquastress Water Stress Index (AWSI). In addition to this composite index, the details of this index are presented in ways that can be visualised, as a means of overcoming the problem of providing complex water stress information as a single number. The framework allows including further information for decision makers within this matrix, like mapped and photographic evidence relating to the specific site under examination, as well as guidance, using a traffic light approach, on the urgency of the situation.
