Global Water Resources Data Products 2023
The Global Water Resources Data Products (2023 edition) reflects the extensive and in-depth research conducted at the CBAS in the areas of drinking water safety, water quality improvement, water efficiency and the water-related ecosystems conservation, as well as the practice of assessing the progress toward SDG 6 at global and regional scales. It includes 7 datasets, such as global cropland water-use efficiency and the Forel-Ule Index of large lakes, among others. These products were created and validated using open data sources, and data disclosure is in line with international conventions on scientific data sharing in the field. It is expected to provide data support for understanding the sustainable use of global water resources, and contribute to the forthcoming Global Water Information System of the United Nations.
