Municipal wastewater: From production to use for irrigation

Major update of wastewater data available in AQUASTAT

AQUASTAT, FAO’s global water information system, and the CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems are collaborating to collect, analyze and validate the best available data on municipal wastewater production, collection, treatment, discharge and direct use for irrigation purposes.

A major review of the data and metadata for the thirteen municipal wastewater-related variables, available in the AQUASTAT database and shown in the diagram on the AQUASTAT wastewater page, has just been finalized.
