Water Consumption and Use

Water Consumption and Use

The relative water consumption per capita, percent usage of available freshwater in each country, and their respective breakdowns of use in agriculture, domestic, and industry are shown for the 120 fastest urbanizing countries. In particular desert countries are highlight by their enormous consumption of water, often several times greater than the extant water in the country, also many countries where there exists a great degree of struggle over water rights are in fact only withdrawing a small portion of the available freshwater, indicating the lack of infrastructure as the greater crisis than water unavailability.
