Christian countries Compared by Agriculture > Annual freshwater withdrawals, agriculture > % of total freshwater withdrawal

DEFINITION: Annual freshwater withdrawals, agriculture (% of total freshwater withdrawal). Annual freshwater withdrawals 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. Withdrawals can exceed 100 percent of total renewable resources where extraction from nonrenewable aquifers or desalination plants is considerable or where there is significant water reuse. Withdrawals for agriculture are total withdrawals for irrigation and livestock production. Data correspond to the most recent year available for 1987-2002.
