Activities  Sustainable Resource Use Freshwater in Europe

The commemoration of the International Year of Freshwater in 2003 stimulated numerous water-related activities at all levels world-wide. DEWA~Europe capitalised on its activities and data available on freshwater for the pan-European region and produced a report: “Freshwater in Europe - Facts, Figures and Maps”.

This publication is an overview, through a set of graphics, maps and other illustrations, on the state of Freshwater in Europe and Central Asia. The review has been compiled in support of UNEP's reporting work on freshwater.

For accessing the publication, go the general page of freshwater in Europe.
