The World Water Atlas

The World Water Atlas is a project from the Netherlands which is identifying the multifaceted risks related to water across the globe. As climate change increases the chances of environmental disasters around the world the World Water Atlas is documenting the dangers of too much, too little and too dirty water.

Because of global warming the seas are rising and many areas of the world are witnessing record levels of flooding.  However 2 in 5 people around the world are still affected by water scarcity. Those who do have access to water often only have access to unclean water. In fact the drinking water of more than two billion people is contaminated by feces. The World Water Atlas includes stories from around the world where people have been impacted by 'too much', 'too little' or 'too dirty water'.

The markers on the World Water Atlas 3D globe are categorized into 'too much', 'too little' or 'too dirty water'. If you select one of the markers on the map you can read more about how these three different water risks are affecting the lives of people around the world. You can filter the category of markers shown on the globe from the map sidebar.
