Logo GWSP Welcome to the GWSP Digital Water Atlas. The purpose and intent of the ‘Digital Water Atlas’ is to describe the basic elements of the Global Water System, the interlinkages of the elements and changes in the state of the Global Water System by creating a consistent set of annotated maps. The project will especially promote the collection, analysis and consideration of social science data on the global basis.


Logo BMBFThe Digital Water Altas is an activity of the Global Water System Project (GWSP). The Atlas is implemented at the GWSP International Project Office (IPO) that is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Ministry of Innovation, Science, Research and Technology of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW). The maps and datasets included in the Atlas are in-kind contributions from GWSP partners (see credits for more details). We would like to thank our funders and our partners, especially the Center for Development Research (ZEF ) at the University of Bonn as our host organisation, for their kind support.
