About Aquastat

AQUASTAT is FAO's global information system of water and agriculture developed by the Land and Water Development Division of FAO. The objective of AQUASTAT is to provide users with comprehensive information on the state of agricultural water management across the world, with emphasis on developing countries and countries in transition.

It is available at:

The AQUASTAT database provides information on water and agriculture by countries in the following main categories:

- Land use and population
- Climate and water resources
- Water use, by sector and by source
- Irrigation and drainage development
- Environment and health

The AQUASTAT database can be queried on-line. The query results can be downloaded in CSV format. The current database provides data per 5-year period if available. It should be noted however that for most variables no time series could be made available. The current version of the database is in development and still slow if many variables are selected. If you have any suggestions regarding the data or the user interface, please send your feedback to: aquastat@fao.org.
