Description of the Platform

Aqueduct is part of WRI’s Water Program and is related to the Corporate Water Stewardship initiative. Aqueduct tools use open-source, peer-reviewed data to map water risks such as floods, droughts, and stress. Aqueduct tools include:

  • Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas, which maps and analyzes current and future water risks across locations;
  • Aqueduct Country Rankings, which allows decision-makers to understand and compare national and subnational water risks;
  • Aqueduct Food, which identifies current and future water risks to agriculture and food security; and
  • Aqueduct Floods, which identifies coastal and riverine flood risks, and analyzes the costs and benefits of investing in flood protection.
