    Accessibility to clean and sufficient water resources for agriculture is key in feeding the steadily increasing world population in a sustainable manner. Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) offer a promising contribution to enhance availability and quality of water for productive purposes and human consumption, while simultaneously striving to preserve the integrity and intrinsic value of the ecosystems. Implementing successful NBS for water management, however, is not an easy task since many ecosystems are already severely degraded, and exploited beyond their regenerative capacity.

This report presents the results of the most recent survey carried out in the 53 countries of Africa, and it analyses the changes that have occurred in the ten years since the first survey. Following the AQUASTAT methodology, the survey relied as much as possible on country-based statistics and information.

    La présente publication émane d'une demande du Directeur général de la FAO visant à rassembler un large éventail de statistiques dans les domaines de l'alimentation et de l'agriculture en indiquant, le cas échéant, les différences entre pays développés et en développement, entre les continents et entre les régions. À l'origine, les tableaux y afférents ont été réalisés et régulièrement mis à jour pour l'usage personnel du Directeur général. Il a néanmoins été décidé de les publier sous forme de document, compte tenu de l'intérêt qu'éveillaient ces informations.
