Water Resources - Total Renewable (Actual)
Entry ID: geodata_1943


Summary
Abstract: Total actual renewable water resources (TARWR): The sum of internal renewable water resources and incoming flow originating outside the country. The computation of TARWR takes into account upstream abstraction and quantity of flows reserved to upstream and downstream countries through formal or informal agreements or treaties. It is a measure of the maximum theoretical amount of water actually available for the country.
