Water stress at shale plays around the world. 20 labeled countries have the world’s largest technically recoverable shale gas resources. Circle color indicates average water stress level across a country’s shale plays—circle size indicates overall volume of recoverable shale gas resources.
This interactive atlas is an information management tool, which aims to help stakeholders and decision makers identify opportunities for restoration.
WRI analysis finds that Arkansas can reduce its CO2 emissions 39 percent below 2011 levels by 2020. These reductions could meet moderately ambitious standards for existing power plants in the near- to medium-term.
Annex I country-reported greenhouse gas emissions to the Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
This data collection focuses on the solar PV and wind industries in China, Germany, India, Japan, and the United States (U.S.).
The CAIT 2.0 U.S. State GHG emissions collection applies a consistent methodology to create a six-gas, multi-sector, and comparable data set for all U.S. states. CAIT 2.0 enables data analysis by allowing users to quickly narrow down by year, gas, state, and sector.
WRI analysis finds that Tennessee can reduce its CO2 emissions 41 percent below 2011 levels by 2020. These reductions would meet or exceed ambitious EPA power plant emissions standards.
The CAIT 2.0 Country GHG emissions collection applies a consistent methodology to create a six-gas, multi-sector, and internationally comparable data set for 186 countries. CAIT 2.0 enables data analysis by allowing users to quickly narrow down by year, gas, country/state, and sector.

This map shows the average exposure of water users in each river basin to water stress, the ratio of total withdrawals to total renewable supply in a given area. A higher percentage means more water users are competing for limited supplies.
