    The AQUASTAT Programme was initiated with a view to presenting a comprehensive picture of water resources and irrigation in developing countries and providing systematic, upto-date and reliable information on water for agriculture and rural development. 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.

    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.
