The Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas (Aqueduct) is a robust communication tool that represents water-related risk through hydrological indicators. The framework comprises of 12 indicators that were developed to aid decision makers in responding to the growing concerns around water issues and climate change. The entire dataset represents a global view and have been presented here as is with all available attributes for Laos.
