Direct beneficial use of rainfall is a substantial amount of water (green water), which if properly assessed, could significantly switch the balance of equitable utilization formulas. A proper water resources assessment is an essential step for the equitable utilization of shared water resources as it provides the opportunity for cooperation among riparian countries of a river basin to develop the untapped water resources in the basin rather than compete over already utilized water resources (blue water).
