Global Airports

Description: 

Airport locations were extracted and mapped from a repository of air traffic flow, and international airports were extracted. Airports were attributed with total seats from the most recent year reported; most recent year for any airport is 2019. Licensing rectrictions means we cannot define the year of reported flows, but the data can be used and disseminated as needed.

Offshore Wind Technical Potential in WBG Client Countries

Description: 

This record contains the tabular data (xlsx) and poster maps that accompanies the information provided in the the WBG report published in October 2019 titled,
"Going Global: Expanding Offshore Wind to Emerging Markets", linked below. Following on from the report, the same methodology was used to generate maps for all WBG client countries with a coastline and with offshore wind resource. Some regional maps (Caribbean Islands, Caspian Sea, Black Sea) were also generated. In some cases maps were generated to illustrate the absence of any resource, to support discussions with clients....
