Webinar - WRI's aqueduct global water risk mapping tool

Type:
Training Course
Organizer:
World Resources Institute (WRI)
Date:
31 Jan 2013

Background

New reports and articles are increasingly pointing to water risk as one of the biggest issues associated with climate change, energy production, food security, and human health. In an effort to better understand how and where these water risks are emerging, WRI published the first-ever Aqueduct water risk map two years ago. Today, the need for better information on where and how water can create risks for companies, investors, and communities is more apparent than ever. To address this need, the Aqueduct team has been working with their hydrological modeling partner, ISciences, on producing a brand new set of global maps of water risk.

Purpose of the webinar

This webinar will provide a first look at WRI’s brand new Aqueduct global water risk mapping tool.

 The new Aqueduct tool is the first ever to provide customizable global maps of twelve indicators of water risk, ranging from water stress levels to drought intensity to threatened amphibian species.

Join WRI for an explanation of the three-year development process that created Aqueduct’s global water risk mapping tool, and a hands-on demonstration of the tool’s capabilities.
