Water (Efficiency)

Water withdrawal intensity

This indicator measures the ratio between total freshwater withdrawn by all major sectors and the total renewable freshwater resources.

Water productivity or water use efficiency

This indicator measures the change in water use efficiency over time. It provides a measure of the efficiency a country’s economy has in using water for production activities, i.e. value added generated by the use of water in the main sectors of the economy, and distribution network losses.

Water resources management

This indicator measures the extent to which integrated water resources management (IWRM) is implemented in 4 main areas: 1) policies, 2) institutions, 3) management tools, and 4) financing.
