This interactive map allows users to explore changes over time in water abstraction by source and water use by sector at sub-basin or river basin scale. The water exploitation index has been calculated as the quarterly average per river basin district, for the years 2002-2012, as defined in the European catchments and rivers network system (ECRINS). The ECRINS delineation of river basin districts differs from that defined by Member States under the Water Framework Directive, particularly for transboundary river basin districts.
