Surface and groundwater abstraction as a share of available resources

External Data Reference
Topics: , ,
This indicator looks at total water abstraction as a percentage of available resources, separated into groundwater and surface water. Annual total gross abstraction from groundwater is presented as a percentage of Member States' renewable groundwater resources available for abstraction, which are defined as long-term annual average groundwater available for abstraction. Annual total gross abstraction made from fresh surface water is presented as a percentage of Member States' renewable surface water resources available for abstraction, which are calculated as total long-term fresh water resources (external inflow plus precipitation less evapotranspitration) less groundwater available for abstraction.
