Measuring & Mapping Water-related Risks

World Resources Institute, in conjunction with several corporate sponsors, has developed a very cool web-based dashboard style GIS tool for measuring and mapping global water-related risks. To put this together, WRI formed a comprehensive set of physical and regulatory indicators to develop a Water Risk Framework for calculating and mapping water risk scores globally. They have also adhered to what appears to be a sensible sustainable strategy for ensuring acceptable Granularity, Replicability, and Availability of data inputs…something to ponder for your own Geo projects!
