Global Country and River Basin Water Stress Rankings

The World Resources Institute Aqueduct Project interactive map shows countries and river basins’ average exposure to five water risk indicators: baseline water stress, interannual variability, seasonal variability, flood occurrence, 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. Australia and the Murray Darling Basin have both been scored as having a high water risk.
