Annotation: This report identifies locations most in need of government oversight and robust corporate policies to properly manage freshwater availability in the context of shale development; and informs companies of potential business risks associated with freshwater availability, and builds the case for corporate water stewardship and early source water assessment. This is the first global and county-specific resource to help stakeholders evaluate freshwater availability across shale plays worldwide.
