Water Scarcity and Risk Mapping Using Geo and Satellite Data

This session will highlight the use of satellite and geo data to improve water availability mapping for a target audience of water managers, policy makers and companies. The session is organized in two sub-sessions, one coordinated by NASA and the second by WRI.


The NASA sub-session will describe its free and open exchange of satellite data useful for data limited developing and mid-income countries. Satellites provide synoptic and timely spatial data to address water issues, including of transboundary and the monitoring of floods and droughts. The NASA sub-session will focus on case studies and partnering with public and private groups with a South Asia case study.


The World Resources Institute (WRI) sub-session will showcase global water risk maps using the best publicly available data and modelling techniques and how maps are used by companies and groups to prioritize investment and engage public sector actors. Aqueduct’s water risk information is available at a global scale to help businesses and groups evaluate exposure to water risk across operations and supply chains.
