This interactive atlas explores water availability across shale gas and tight oil resources.
This restoration opportunity map is a revised and improved version of a previous map published in 2009.
Nearly 450 million hectares of degraded forest landscapes — an area the size of the European Union — offer opportunities for restoration in Africa, more than in any other continent

In the Southern United States, the watersheds with the greatest ability to produce clean water and with the most consumers tend to be the forested watersheds of the east (top).
Coral reefs are classified by estimated present threat from overfishing and destructive fishing, which threatens more than 55 percent of reefs globally.
Coral reefs are classified by estimated present threat from watershed-based pollution, which threatens more than 25 percent of reefs globally.
Coral reefs are classified by estimated present threat from marine-based pollution and damage, which threatens approximately 10 percent of reefs globally.
Coral reefs are classified by estimated present threat from coastal development, which threatens approximately 25 percent of reefs globally.
The map shows estimated aragonite saturation state (an indicator of ocean acidification) for CO2 stabilization levels of 380 ppm, 450 ppm, and 500 ppm, which correspond approximately to the years 200
The map reflects the locations of thermal stress (i.e., abnormally high sea surface temperatures) on coral reefs between 1998 and 2007 based on coral bleaching observations (in purple) and severe ther
