Freshwater resources

Year: 2005 Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Access to water is perhaps one of the greatest challenges for sustainable development in Africa. This resource includes three graphics. The first shows the average annual freshwater withdrawal, in cubic metres per capita per year, at the national level for Africa. The second graphic shows the annual volume of water resources, in cubic kilometres, that each continent has, based on the average of figures from 1921 to 1985. The final graphic shows the amount by which amounts of water resources have deviated from the average values for the time period 1920 to 1999.
