Beskrivning av projektet
Water scarcity is receiving increasing attention, but it can be difficult to find easily understandable information. What does water scarcity mean? What is the current situation? How did we get there? What does this mean for the future? What opportunities are there for action, policy and investment? In WASCO, we are developing a website for a Global Water Scarcity Atlas where users can interactively explore these issues to learn about water scarcity, as well as download the data for their own strategic planning, research or presentations. The Atlas will be a hub for future development of research, management and business communities interested in water scarcity and its strategic implications for investment in public and private sector mitigation and adaptation actions.
