About this Tool

This database provides the first-ever compilation of the world’s river basins developed specifically for corporate disclosure. It features a comprehensive list of river basins worldwide, including their names, boundaries, and other helpful information.

Many companies provide location-specific information in their water reporting. However, they often don’t have a common reference point for the places they talk about. Because of this, they often refer to the same place by different names, or to different places using the same name.

This database solves that problem by allowing you to Find Basins by Latitude / Longitude Points and Find Basins by Country.
