Private: Hydropower Dams

A subset of data containing known operational and planned hydropower dams in the Greater Mekong Subregion, for Vietnam, compiled by International Rivers and published in June 2014. Dams data are compiled from various sources, including: the Global Reservoir and Dam (GRanD) Database, the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) Challenge Program on Water and Food - Mekong (for Mekong Basin dams only), the United States National Inventory of Dams (NID), other government dam inventories, and original data collection by International Rivers.

Aqueduct Atlas – Consumptive Use

Consumptive use is the portion of all water withdrawn that is consumed through evaporation, incorporation into a product, or pollution, such that it is no longer available for reuse. Non-consumptive use is the remainder of withdrawals that is not consumed and instead returns to ground or surface water bodies.

Aqueduct Atlas – Baseline Water Stress

Baseline water stress measures total annual water withdrawals (municipal, industrial, and agricultural) expressed as a percent of the total annual available flow. Higher values indicate more competition among users.

Aqueduct Atlas – Available Blue Water

Available blue water (Ba) is the total amount of water available to a catchment before any uses are satisfied. It is calculated as all water flowing into the catchment from upstream catchments minus upstream consumptive use plus runoff in the catchment.

Aqueduct Alas – Access to Water

Access to water measures the percentage of population without access to improved drinking-water sources. Higher values indicate areas where people have less access to safe drinking water, and consequently higher reputational risks to those not using water in an equitable way.
