INFANTE ROMERO, Herbert Augusto  and  FERNANDO ORTIZ, Luis. Methodological fit for the IDEAM`s water shortage index in the land-use and management plan of Pamplonita river, Norte de Santander-Colombia. Colomb. for. [online]. 2008, vol.11, n.1, pp.165-173. ISSN 0120-0739.

A methodological adjustment was made to shortage index calculation taking the Pamplonita river case, which is incorporated as a management tool in watershed management plans using the guide published by the Institute of Hydrology, Meteorology and Environmental Studies -IDEAM. The objective was to improve the standard resolution of the information to make it more reliable in water supply and water demand for various uses, which in combination related to shortage index will become a technical-scientific decision-making element on water management within the framework of watershed management. The result gave the highest reliability on estimated municipal shortage index and demonstrated the urgent need to plan the supply of various demands, because more than 80% of the population of the basin is in a shortage of high rank in a typical year.

Keywords : water; shortage index; watershed; Pamplonita river; Norte de Santander; Colombia.
