Short summary
Socioeconomic and hydro-climatic data were used to model water resources, water demand and their interactions in two river basins. By using an integrative framework we successfully modeled variations in water stress over the past 40 years, accounting for climate and human pressures and changes in water management strategies over time. We explained past changes in discharge by separating human and hydro-climatic trends. This work will help assess future water stress and design adaptation plans.
