Freshwater Sustainability Analysis (Projected Change)

In addition to indicator and overall global water risk maps, Aqueduct provides a set of maps of projected change in water stress levels in the coming decades. This set of 10 maps, which can be found under the "Projected Change" tab of the Water Risk Atlas, show how baseline water stress could change by 2025, 2050, and 2095 under three different climate change and economic growth scenarios created by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

This document summarizes the data sources and methodology behind Aqueduct's global maps of projected change in water stress. These maps are based on data from the year 2000 and were donated to the Aqueduct project by The Coca-Cola Company. Updated versions of the projected change maps will be published by Aqueduct in 2013.
