Matti Kummu, Hans De Moel, Philip J. Ward & Olli Varis
Traditionally, people have inhabited places with ready access to fresh water. Today, over 50% of the global population lives in urban areas, and water can be directed via tens of kilometres of pipelines.

We present a high-resolution global analysis of how close present-day populations...
