Mapping India's Water Supply & Demand
It is predicted that India will only be able to meet 50% of its water demand by 2030. A new map, from the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and other organizations, has been released to help water users in India respond to these challenges by measuring and mapping water risks in the country.
The India Water Tool uses 14 datasets and risk indicators to map India's water supply and water-related risks. The map provides an overview of annual rainfall across India and an insight into groundwater levels and surface water quality. The map also allows you to view projected water demand for 2025.
