Water stress in Europe (EEA)

Periods when the demand for water exceeds the available resources are more and more frequent in Europe. This phenomenon is also called water stress.

The European Environment Agency (EEA) has identified this phenomenon in the form of an interactive map. It allows users to explore the evolution over time of water withdrawals by source, water use by sector and water stress level. Data are available by month between 1990 and 2016.
