    This paper applies the principles of water-use accounts, developed in the first of the

    series, to the Indus River basin in South Asia. The Indus Basin covers 3 countries, rises

    in the Tibetan plateau in the vicinity of Lake Mansarovar in China. Irrigated agriculture

    in the Basin is extensive with the construction of dams, barrages, and link canals to

    distribute water, with modern engineering to support irrigation starting as early as the

    mid 1800s.

    Net runoff is about 10% of total precipitation. Irrigated agriculture covers 20% of

    This paper applies the principles of water-use accounts, developed in the first of the

    series, to the São Francisco basin in South America. The São Francisco Basin lies wholly

    within Brazil. There are several major dams and wetlands in the Basin.

    Net runoff is about 16% of total precipitation. Grassland is the most extensive land use,

    covering 59% of the Basin and uses 48% of the water. Rainfed agriculture covers 23%

    of the basin, but uses 14% of the water in the Basin. Forest and woodland cover 16% of
