What is your Country’s Water Risk?

Following from our post ‘Designing Sustainable Futures’ on Wednesday, what is the overall water risk to each country? And how is this established?

This risk is calculated based on various parameters, which include: baseline water stress, inter-annual variability, seasonal variability, flood occurrence, drought severity, upstream storage, groundwater stress, threatened amphibians and access to water.

The map below highlights each country’s overall water risk according to the above parameters.
