Annual freshwater withdrawals (billion cubic meters) - 2002
Refer to total water withdrawals, not counting evaporation losses from storage basins. Withdrawals also include water from desalination plants in countries where they are a significant source. Withrawals can exceed 100 percent of internal renewable resources because river flows from other countries are not included, because extraction from nonrenewable aquifers or desalination plants is considerable, or because there is significant water reuse.
Note: Official MDG indicator related to Target 7.A : Integrate the principles of sustainable development into country policies and programmes and reverse the loss of environmental resources
