To illustrate the approach, we demonstrate how a quantitative analysis of use (abstrac- tion and consumption) and provision probability of blue and green waters can be conducted, so as to provide indicators of water scarcity and vulnerability for a socially relevant study basin in the southeast of Part of the problem of creating and using indicators for water security, or any other type of resource scarcity, is that many indicators do not specify what the goals of the indicator are and mix a variety of input, output, and state of the resource variables to define the index. 40. 6 Recommendations. 34. 3.
