New mapping tool and database examines how threats to green infrastructure affect water security

This week, our friends over at the World Resources Institute launched Global Forest Watch (GFW) Water, a global mapping tool and database, that examines how forest loss, fires, unsustainable land use and other threats to natural infrastructure affect water security throughout the world. GFW Water provides data sets, statistics and risk scores for all of the world’s 230 watersheds, areas of land where all of the water drains to a common outlet such as a river. Users can drop a pin anywhere to learn about the risks to the water supply near them, and find resources on how investing in natural infrastructure protection can help alleviate these threats.

Head on over to World Resources Institute to learn more!
