AQUASTAT is FAO's global information system on water and agriculture. It collects, analyses and disseminates data and information by country and by region. Its aim is to provide users interested in global, regional and national analyses with comprehensive information related to water resources and agricultural water management across the world, with emphasis on countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.
AQUASTAT offers the user standardized data and tools to generate its own analysis. Ultimately, it aims to improve the user's understanding and monitoring of water resources, uses, and irrigation management.
AQUASTAT offers data, metadata, reports, country profiles, river basin profiles, regional analyses, maps, tables, spatial data and guidelines on water resources, water uses, dams and water-related institutions, policies and legislation.
