New Mobile-Friendly Water Risk Atlas

Aqueduct on Mobile PhoneEarlier today, Blue Raster and the World Resources Institute (WRI) released a new version of Aqueduct Atlas, an application helping companies and investors manage exposure to water risks. Launched in 2013, Aqueduct is used worldwide by leading companies, including McDonald’s, Goldman Sachs, and Procter & Gamble. For the first time, the site is optimized for mobile phones and tablets.

The new site enables users to:

  • Assess water stress, supply, and demand in the coming decades
  • Learn where water risks will be most severe under well-known climate scenarios
  • Prioritize investments for projected conditions

Blue Raster has been an invaluable partner in building innovative mapping tools to meet our target audiences’ needs.”
