This map shows countries and river basins' average exposure to five of Aqueduct's water risk indicators: baseline water stress, interannual variability, seasonal variability, flood occurence, and drought severity. Risk exposure scores are available for every country (except Greenland and Antarctica), the 100 most populous river basins, and the 100 largest river basins by area. Scores are also available for all industrial, agricultural, and domestic users' average exposure to each indicator in each country and river basin.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The working paper on this page has been updated. The previous version listed Northern Cyprus as a country. It has been removed from this version, as it is an internationally disputed territory. The description has been revised accordingly.
