Renewable freshwater supplies, per river basin

Year: 2005
From collection: Vital Water Graphics
Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Freshwater represents a crucial sort for human development, for nature and for ecosystem services. This graphic compares freshwater supplies in cubic metres per capita, per river basin in 1995 with a projection of freshwater supplies for the same areas in 2025. The graphic shows which areas were experiencing water stress, which were experiencing water scarcity and which had sufficient quantities of freshwater in 1995, and shows projections for this data for 2025. It also shows the amount of water in cubic metres per capita per year that is supplied by 26 major river basins.
