Agricultural Exposure to Water Stress
Tools and Databases

Interactive Map // Agricultural Exposure to Water Stress

This interactive map shows the competition for and depletion of water in major agricultural areas. On a click, you get the baseline water stress in major crop producing areas. Baseline water stress is measure of demand and supply for water in a given area, and is calculated as the ratio of local water withdrawal over available water supply. Crop production in each category is computed by overlaying gridded crop production data.
