The majority of Commonwealth countries face low or low-medium levels of water stress, partly explained by either being a coastal or island nation. Cluster of countries that are close to each other – the cluster of Botswana, Namibia, South Africa and Lesotho, and the cluster of Pakistan and India (not shown in the visualisation) face high water stress and possibly require enhanced support and intervention to become sustainable in the near future.
