Under the headings of agriculture, forests and biodiversity, energy, emissions and pollution, water and sanitation, environment and health, and national accounts aggregates, 50 indicators for over 200 countries are compiled each year in The Little Green Data Book. It is a knowledge resource that aims to aid policy-makers in using environmental data more effectively to support priority-setting and improved development outcomes. Statistics show how the world has become drier as water resources per capita have diminished under the pressure of fast-growing population. Water availability is below scarcity levels in the Middle East and North Africa and South Asia. Data shown include: Internal freshwater resources per capita; Freshwater withdrawal; Access to improved water source; and Access to improved sanitation.
